Corn Bread Waffles & Chili, a fun & easy dinner.


I’ve been making simple dinners for my family lately because of my dieting. I haven’t wanted to put in hours at the stove for dinners that I will not be sharing with them. Selfish? Maybe, but they seem to be enjoying what I’ve been whipping up for them (so it’s win-win). I made the latest test-recipe today with my 7 year old and it was quick, easy & relatively healthy.

Box of Corn Bread Mix
3/4 C milk
2 T oil
2 cans of chili (I used 1 turkey & 1 vegetarian)
Optional garnish/condiments: anything you would normally enjoy with a Mexican meal such as cilantro, sour cream & cheese.

Directions: mix first 4 ingredients & set aside. Pre-Heat waffle-maker. Heat canned chili as directed. Pour a ladle-full of corn bread mix into waffle maker and cook as you would a regular waffle. Place waffle on plate and add a ladle-full of chili. Garnish & Enjoy!


The goal for this recipe was for a quick & easy meal, but this would also be amazing with homemade chili if you had the time!


About hobbymamma

I'm a mother of the marvelous Olivia (age 7), the adorable Cooper (almost 3) and Wyatt (6 months). As a busy SAHM (& wife to Tyson aka 'Sarge'), I find myself with irons in many fires. Some of my time is also devoted to voluntary services for various non-profit organizations. The idea for this blog came from something I find myself thinking or saying rather often lately: I have so many interests & hobbies that I don't consider myself 'expert' at any of them. It can be frusterating on occasion, but mostly I find it refreshing and rewarding to enjoy such variety. On this blog I share bits and hints about some of the hobbies I currently enjoy. When considering some of my favorite hobbies - i've discovered that a theme that threads through many of them is green. Not necessarily the color (that too) but 'green practices'. I often find myself thinking, how can I make this more environmentally friendly. What ingredients or products are better for my family and the beautiful planet where we live. I hope you will enjoy reading about some of my hobbies and be inspired to try something new!
