Spicy Chili with Cornbread Waffles

This was a fun take on chili and cornbread! Instead of traditional cornbread on the side the chili is served on top of a cornbread waffle. It was yummy! The chili was a tad spicy (I cut the chili powder in half) so keep that in mind. My kids ate it fine and didn't complain about it being spicy and I have a low tolerence for heat but I thought I should mention that in case you don't do spicy food! :)

A fun take indeed. I would have never thought of making a cornbread waffle but it's such a fun idea.

I posted chili on cornbread waffles last year and I was totally surprised and impressed how non-breakfast it was...I just love all of the crusty bits on traditional cornbread, so cornbread in a waffle iron gave me lots of "brown edges"...great recipe.

My husband and I love chili (I cook it in big batches in my crock pot and then freeze it), I will most definitely need to try the cornbread waffle recipe to go with the chili next time I make it!
