As I had a few ‘meal coupons’ from my son, I decided to have him make a new dish, Cornbread Waffles with Chili. The chili is super simple to make and he already knew how to make waffles so it was an easy meal for him to make. The combo, while questionable to some, was delicious.
To make this recipe for Cornmeal Waffles with Chili, head back over to barefeetinthekitchen.com. This is the same sight I got the recipe for Hawaiian Oatmeal from. A new fav recipe sight for me.
My son made the waffle recipe as it reads. The chili recipe was tweaked a bit. Here are the changes:
The Easiest Chili Recipe Ever…
First off, cut the recipe in half. Next, cut the white beans and fire-roasted tomatoes from the recipe.
Here is the ingredient list that was used:
- 1 pd Italian Sausage
- 1 14-oz can pinto beans (drained and washed)
- 1 14-oz can black beans (drained and washed)
- 1 8-oz can tomato sauce
- 1 14-oz can diced tomatoes
- 1 4-oz can mild chopped green chiles
- 1 7-oz can yellow corn (drained)
- 1 TBSP Chili Powder
- 1/2 tsp thyme
- 1/2 tsp cumin
- Toppings: Shredded mexican or cheddar cheese
The chili was made using the stove-top directions. Basically cook the meat, dump everything in a pot, bring to a boil, reduce heat to low and simmer covered for 15 minutes. While the chili is simmering make the waffles. When the waffles are finished top with a cup of chili and sprinkle with cheese.
This recipe was the perfect amount to cover the 7 waffles with 1 cup of chili each.
A big THANKS to my son for a wonderful meal! It was yummy and something I will have him make again! (hee hee)
