Cornbread Waffles with Chili

in , by Kelly , January 30, 2018
  • 2 packs Martha White Mexican Style Cornbread Mix *I USED JIFFY MIX PLAIN*
  • 1 1/3 cups milk
  • 2 Eggland's Best eggs
  • 2 30 oz cans chili
  • Toppings: sour cream, shredded lettuce, diced tomatoes, shredded cheese
  1. Preheat your waffle iron to a medium-high setting.
  2. If your waffle iron has a number setting, set it to a number 4 (higher if you want a darker, crispier waffle.)
  3. Also at this point you will want to start heating up your chili.
  4. Pour both cans of chili into a covered pot and heat up until warmed through or pop it into a microwave-safe bowl and heat until warmed through.
  5. In a medium bowl, combine both packs of cornbread mix with eggs and milk.
  6. Stir well until combined.
  7. Once your waffle iron is heated, spray with nonstick spray.
  8. Pour one cup of cornbread mix onto waffle iron.
  9. Depending on your type of waffle iron, the light will come on or it will beep when ready.
  10. Once they are all cooked up, it’s time for toppings!
  11. Top waffles with chili, shredded lettuce, diced tomatoes, sour cream and shredded cheese.

I have been MIA for awhile. Last week I had the flu and so did my dad. This flu season is a pain in the butt. I am all better, but this cough is killing me. It's a big pain in the butt. I am so ready for Spring!!!!

This past weekend we went to go see my brother, sister-in-law and their kids. It was a great trip. 

I will get back to blogging soon..............have a great week everyone!!!

Well, yesterday(Sunday) wasn't the ending that us Saints fans had in mind. Going into round 2 was great, but getting beat at the very last seconds wasn't so great. 

Going into halftime and not up on the board was misable too. Coming back after halftime was AWESOME!!!!  I was thinking "We are going to win this game. One step closer to our 2nd Super Bowl" I am a so so proud of my Saints. They played a hell of a season. Can't wait for next...........
