Jalapeño Cornbread Waffles

These are delicious and very easy to make, and they make a great companion to Chili and White Bean Soup! You can also serve them for breakfast with a little maple syrup!

Cook / Prep Time – About 30 minutes

Yield– 4 / 4 1/2″ x 5″ waffles


  • 1 – 8.5 oz. box of cornbread mix (I prefer Jiffy brand)
  • 1/3 cup of milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbsp chopped jalapeño peppers

  • 1/2 cup frozen corn, chopped
  • 1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 tbsp canola oil
  • Pan spray

Dump the cornbread mix into a mixing bowl. Add the milk, oil and egg and mix well. Fold the peppers, corn and cheese in. If you like it extra spicy, just add more jalapeños.

Spray the waffle iron with pan spray and preheat. When the iron is hot, add the batter, close the iron and cook until well browned, about 5 minutes. Remove, butter, and serve immediately.


Suggested music to listen to while waffling…..

Since Sir Cliff Richard turned 79 yesterday, how about…

“Devil Woman” from his 1976 album “I’m Nearly Famous” and “We Don’t Talk Anymore” from his 1979 album ” Rock ‘n’ Roll Juvenile”

While Cliff Richard is a relative unknown in the United States, the Englishman has been making music since the 1950s, and one of his biggest fans was John Lennon.
