Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a small skillet over medium heat. Add chiles, season with salt, and cook until softened and slightly golden, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.

  • Preheat a Belgian waffle iron.

  • In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, cornmeal, baking powder, 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon salt, and cayenne pepper. Add milk, remaining 2/3 cup olive oil, and eggs, and maple syrup, whisking to combine. Do not overmix; batter may be lumpy. Fold in the cheddar cheese and reserved sauteed chiles. Let batter rest at least 30 minutes at room temperature, and up to one hour.

  • Spray waffle iron with cooking spray. Pour 3/4 cup batter into waffle iron. Cook until golden brown, about 7 minutes. Carefully remove waffle from iron and repeat process with remaining batter. Serve immediately with desired toppings.

Delicious! Also made the sweet-and-spicy glazed pork belly, which wasn't that good. The waffles made up for it however.
