Easy corn meal waffles, topped with a quick Mexican mixture for a good meal on its own or accompanied by a green salad. Note: Mexicans do not add sugar to corn meal, so this is not a sweet bread but a savory bread.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. For the waffles: Mix and sift flour, corn meal, baking powder, salt and sugar.
  2. Beat the egg yolks, add the milk, and combine well with the cornmeal mixture.
  3. Beat the cornmeal mixture until smooth.
  4. Add the melted butter to this mixture and mix well.
  5. Beat the egg whites until stiff and fold into this mixture.
  6. Bake in a hot waffle iron until golden brown.
  7. For the topping: Brown the ground beef and chopped onion.
  8. Add all other ingredients and simmer uncovered at least 20 minutes until topping is rather firm in consistency, not soupy.
  9. Serve the topping over warm waffles and enjoy!

I used the waffle recipe and served with creamed chicken and broccoli. The kids were doubtful but ate it up!

A fantastic recipe. Even my husband who usually has no opinion on food really liked it. For the waffles, I used whole wheat flour instead of white and added 1/4 cup of ground flax seed- we try to be as healthy as possible. I also added garlic powder and shredded mozzarella to the batter. You can put many things over these waffles. Next time, I'll try a chicken recipe.

Yummy! Similar to chili with cornbread, but the waffles are a nice change. I may try adding a bit more sugar to the waffles next time as my family likes their cornbread on the sweeter side and would have probably enjoyed the waffles more had they been sweeter. I served this with sour cream, shredded cheddar, chopped onions and olives as garnish and it is a keeper.
