Wacky Worldy Waffle Wednesday: Taco Waffles!

For the second week of Wacky Worldly Waffle Wednesday, we decided to go with waffles with a Mexican twist... Enter Taco Waffles!

They were a win!  I wonder where we'll go with our waffles next week...

Taco Waffles

1 1/4 c King Arthur Flour White Whole Wheat flour
1 1/2 c cornmeal
2 Tbsp baking powder
3/4 tsp baking soda
2 eggs
1 3/4 c skim milk
1 Tbsp brown sugar
2 Tbsp taco seasoning
2 Tbsp vegetable oil
1 c shredded Mexican blend cheese

Taco topping:

1 lb ground turkey
2-4 Tbsp taco seasoning, depending on your preference
lettuce, shredded
taco sauce
shredded Mexican blend cheese
guacamole (optional)

Blend together dry ingredients for the waffle batter, and then stir in the wet ingredients, finally folding in the cheese.  Cook waffles in a waffle iron per manufacture's instructions.   If you have an option for a crisper waffle, use it.  These waffles are better on the crisp side.  Place in the oven on warm on a plate or a platter until they are all done and you are ready to serve.

I love avocados!
Meanwhile, prepare the toppings.  Cook the ground turkey with the taco seasoning (I used a crockpot to have it ready when I got home from work, but you could do it in a pan on the stove).  Place toppings in serving dishes so that diners can top their own taco waffles as desired.

Top a waffle with some meat, then some guacamole (if desired), lettuce, cheese, and taco sauce.  Enjoy!
