Taco salad is a good old stand-by for us. Everyone likes it, and we usually have everything on hand to make it. This time however, we were out of tortilla chips and I wasn't about to run to the store to get some in the pouring rain. You can't have taco salad without the "taco" part right? I got brainstorming and wondered how it would taste to put it on top of cornbread waffles? Delicious!! What a fun way to switch up a classic.


My taco salad recipe can be found here

Cornbread Waffles:
recipe adapted from here

1 ½ cups plain cornmeal 
½ cup flour
2 ½ teaspoons baking powder
¾ teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons sugar
1 egg
1 ½ cups milk
4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
Preheat a waffle iron and grease it lightly.
In a medium bowl, combine the cornmeal, flour, baking powder, salt and sugar. In a separate bowl, combine the egg, milk, and butter. Add to the cornmeal mixture, stirring until moistened.
Pour 1/2 cup measures into the waffle iron and cook until crisp. Repeat with remaining batter. Serve warm. Makes 12 servings.

This is a stand by recipe for us too! I will have to try to this instead of chips--it sounds like it is great.
