This is a recipe that you should bookmark. Do it right now! Not only is it quick and easy, these chili-covered cornmeal waffles seem like the kind of meal that you worked really hard on. Sexy Nerd was certainly impressed when he came home to this dinner.
LambAround's Easy Peasy Chili
1 can tomatoes with green chili
1 can white beans
1 heaping spoonful of creamed corn
Cooked ground beef (amount dependent on how carnivorous you're feeling)
1 diced bell pepper
1 diced white onion
1 diced garlic clove
1 dried red chili pepper (be sure to remove this after cooking!)
1 bay leaf (ditto)
Hefty dash each of cumin and red chili flakes
Simmer all ingredients in a covered pan for at least 45 minutes.
(Easy peasy, right?)
(also easy peasy - woo hoo!)
Take your favorite regular waffle recipe. Substitute half the flour with cornmeal and throw in a sprinkle of seasoned salt, like Season All. If using a mix, like Bisquick, substitute half the mix with cornmeal. When cooking, resist the urge to impatiently pull them from the waffle iron early (I know you want to eat them right now but they work best for this when they're nice and crispy!)
Now the fun part!

...topped with hot, flavorful chili...
...and smothered with gobs of shredded mozzarella cheese!
This recipe is a keeper!
