Green Chile Cornbread Waffles - TheFitFork.comIt’s Waffle Wednesday — I just couldn’t wait for our weekend brunch. You’re not going to believe how crusty, crunch and crave-worthy these Green Chile Cornbread Waffles are. The cornmeal and cheese creates an extra crispy outer texture, yet they are still delicate and tender inside. The green chiles add a mild twang, yet not too spicy for the kids. I’d be very happy eating these waffles alone – but when I tried a drizzle of honey on top, the sweet-savory combo was a must-do-this again experience.

Of course, you can top these Green Chile Cornbread Waffles with anything that you like! For my friends at the Texas Beef Council, I created a southwestern-inspired sloppy job topping – ooh boy, with crispy nooks and crannies, these waffles become the perfect vehicle for delivering a hearty meal with out sogginess.  Check out the full recipe here —- >  BeefLovingTexans.com.

An egg, anyway you’d like, also makes the perfect topping along with a little salsa!  These savory waffles heat up really nicely in the toaster and you can make a big batch to stash in the freezer.  Enjoy!

Note:  I use fire-roasted Hatch green chiles that I stock up when in season (August) and store in my freezer. I also use the Hatch Green Chile Store as a shopping resource to satisfy my love for these amazing peppers. In a pinch, canned diced green chiles will also work . . . or even jalapenos if you’d like a little more heat.

  1. SO fantastic. I have a crazy pancake recipe coming on Friday that I think will surprise a lot of people, but I am more of a crazy french toast topper person myself. Also, drunken french toast. Amazing.

    • A couple years ago I did banana muffins with green chile — sounds weird, but strangely good, and actually won me bragging rights as Hatch Chile Queen at a cookoff 😉

  2. These look amazing! Do you think they’d true out well as pancakes? I don’t have a waffle maker.

  3. Any suggestions on a gluten-free version?
    And is Almond milk acceptable for the milk?
    Thanks!!

    • Yes, almond milk will work. As for suggestions for gluten free- I’d use a GF yellow cornmeal and then experiment with one of the GF baking blends . . . or maybe GF oat flour

    • I haven’t tried to make these GF yet, but I’m thinking just swap in a GF baking blend like King Arthur or Bob’s Red Mill blends pre-made mixes
