For the my first birthday after we started dating Zach got me a waffle maker as one of my presents. It sounds very, shall we say, domestic, but I had wanted one, and we were spending our weekends together long enough at that point that our breakfasts needed some new variations. Upon opening it I discovered a few recipes in the manual, one of which was this one, Cornmeal Waffles. As soon as I saw it I wanted to make them and top them with Zach's award winning chili -- yes he's actually won an award for it, at a work chili cookoff contest, but that's still an award! It's a delicious twist on cornbread with chili and helps to counteract the spiciness that Zach's chili often has. You can top with sour cream, shredded cheese, and sliced green onions!
