It’s September, and that means National Waffle Week is around the corner as the first full week kicks off the celebration. Now, you may be wondering what in the world waffles have to do with Mexican cuisine – well, that’s what we’re here for, to let you know!
Although most people don’t associate waffles with Mexican food, we’re here to shed the light. From breakfast to dinner, waffles are the perfect companion to any meal. All you need is a bit of imagination!
Mexican Cornbread Waffles
Just like you remember, waffles are an amazing breakfast treat. However, when it comes to Mexican cuisine, you’ll want to set aside the sugar and take out the cornmeal. This recipe combines traditional dry ingredients such as flour, baking soda, and baking powder with wet ingredients like eggs, butter, and milk to create a mouth-watering waffle like you’ve never experienced.
Topped with your favorite fresh fruit, whipped cream, and syrup, you’ll be starting the day off on the right foot! Although there are several variations online, check out this recipe from smittenkitchen.com.
Alright, we got through breakfast, maybe worked out, had a snack, and we’re onto lunch. Although you may opt for a salad or sandwich, National Waffle Week calls for a bit more excitement (at least one day anyway). Enter the churro waffle.
Lightly crispy outer edges covered in cinnamon and sugar topped with butter and dunked in Mexican chocolate sauce. Oh my, does it get any better than this? Although the churro is primarily a snack, this recipe from A Bajillian Recipes sure has us rethinking lunch next week!
Taco Stuffed Waffles
Okay, how do we not mention the taco? A staple to Mexican cuisine, Waffle Week if the perfect time to combine some of your favorite ingredients that you may not have otherwise thought of. For example, the waffle and taco – or how about a taco stuffed waffle? Yep, you read that right.
Beyond frosting has our attention with their recipe combining seasoned meat or beans into the waffle mix. Once cooked, they’re topping off the waffle stack with cheese, guacamole, and whatever else your taco calls for!
Although we won’t be making waffles here at California Burritos, we’ll be celebrating! Visit our Facebook page and send us over your Mexican cuisine during Waffle Week. We want to see you get creative!
