Jalapeño Cheddar Cornbread Waffles with Chili




Yield 4-5 servings

Perfect way to devour leftover chili! Crispy, cheesy and spicy Jalapeno Cheddar Cornbread Waffles smothered in chili and drizzled with maple syrup.


For serving:


  1. In a large bowl, stir together cornmeal, flour, baking powder, and salt.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs, buttermilk, honey and melted butter.
  3. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients, and stir until just combined. Once mixed together, stir in shredded cheddar cheese and diced jalapenos.
  4. Heat and grease your waffle iron, and cook the waffles according to your waffle iron’s directions.
  5. Serve warm covered with your favorite chili and maple syrup! 


I recommend leaving the seeds and membranes in the jalapeno because it honestly wasn't that spicy. It was perfect!
