Chorizo and Green Chile Waffle

Ingredients

makes 8 waffles

  • 1/2 lb. fresh chorizo, crumbled
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 2 tbsp. sugar
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp of chili powder
  • 5 large eggs
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1 cup shredded sharp yellow cheddar
  • 1/2cup 505 green chile
  • 2 tbsp. fresh cilantro, finely chopped
  • 1 cup amber agave syrup

Instructions

Preheat a waffle iron to high.  In a small skillet, heat a drizzle of oil over medium-high. Add the crumbled chorizo; cook, stirring occasionally and breaking up with a spoon, until browned, about 5 minutes. Transfer to paper towels to drain. In a medium bowl, whisk the flour, sugar, baking powder, chili powder, and 1/2 tsp. salt.  In a large bowl, whisk 1 egg and the milk. Whisk in the dry ingredients, then stir in the chorizo, cheese,  jalapeño and cilantro. Brush the waffle iron with melted butter. Working in batches and using a 1/4- to 1/3-cup measure, scoop up the batter and add to the waffle iron. Cook the waffles until cooked through and crispy, 3 to 4 minutes per batch. Serve with a drizzle of agave syrup
