Cornbread Waffles with Chili

Dinner in 15 minutes, yep, that is what I have for you all today! This cornbread waffles with chili comes together in no time. You top it with canned chili (or leftover homemade chili if you have it).

Think of it like a Navajo taco. You fix it the same way, it just begins with a tasty cornbread base instead of a fry bread base.

You can also get as crazy as you want with the toppings. I used what I had on hand – cheese, sour cream, green onion, and sliced olives! It was a hit with the family and will now be a great go to meal when I’m in a pinch.
