We start this New Year 2020 with a very easy and successful recipe. Jalapeno Cheddar Corn Waffles ; a recipe that from now on I tell you, is going to become an essential for your whole family. And also, to improve it, if possible, I will tell you that we are going to accompany it with a cheddar cheese sauce. Yes, yes, just what you're thinking: To dip the waffle well!

A sweet waffle is always welcome, but it is true that they cannot be abused either; but with these salty ones, I think we can make an exception. Not only can we eat them as a snack, but they are an ideal substitute for bread for any meal that requires it. Also, why not, they can be a great breakfast.

Also, I'm going to tell you something: After cooking them, we can freeze them and always have them on hand. You just have to let it defrost at room temperature or if you are not one of those who waits even a minute... Put them in the toaster, like a slice of bread and enjoy.

To make these waffles, I used the Nordic Ware waffle maker , not only does it make great waffles, but what I like most about it is that it doesn't take up any space, it's like having another pan, and on top of that, it it can clean great.

We can accompany these waffles with anything, feel free to experiment with your accompaniments and do not forget to share it with me to give me any more ideas.

This recipe is ideal for children, yes, if they do not like spicy, or are not used to its flavor, it is better to omit the jalapeño, which although they are not spicy at all, perhaps they can notice it. Also, these waffles are gluten-free , so one more point in their favor.

Have I told you that it is a very easy recipe? You just need a few hand whisks and a couple of bowls; and if you are looking for a pair of hands for the little ones in the house, the job is more than done. Let's go with the recipe!



For the waffles:

  • 155g corn flour
  • 45g of rice flour
  • 30g of oatmeal
  • 50g sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking soda
  • 1 tablespoon of salt
  • 2 eggs L
  • 250ml of milk
  • 60ml of melted butter
  • 80g grated cheddar cheese
  • 1 large jalapeno chopped

For the cheddar cheese sauce:

  • 250g of chopped cheddar cheese
  • 150ml of liquid cream for cooking
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • A pinch of salt and pepper
  • 1 pinch of hot paprika (optional)
  • Jalapenos (optional)


  1. In a medium bowl , mix the corn flour, rice flour, oatmeal flour, sugar, bicarbonate of soda and salt.
  2. In another bowl, mix the eggs and milk until combined. Add the melted butter and mix until combined.
  3. Pour the liquid ingredients into the flour mixture and beat until completely combined. Add the cheddar cheese and chopped jalapeño.
  4. Heat the Nordic Ware waffle maker for at least 3 minutes on both sides over medium heat. Grease the waffle maker with oil or melted butter on both sides. Pour about ¼ cup, about 70g of dough, into each one, and cook for about 1 minute and a half on each side. To check that it is ready, open the waffle maker very slowly and check that they are golden. If they aren't, let them cook a little longer.
  5. As soon as they are ready, transfer them to a rack until the entire dough is complete.
  6. Serve immediately warm along with the cheddar cheese sauce.

      Preparation of the cheddar cheese sauce

      1. In a saucepan over medium heat, heat the butter until melted.
      2. Add the cooking cream, salt, pepper and finely chopped cheese.
      3. We begin to melt it without stopping stirring until it takes the perfect texture. Add the paprika and jalapeños if we wish.

      Hola, Isabel y Silvia:

      Es harina de maíz amarilla, en mi caso usé “Doñarepa”.

      Silvia Martin said:

      La misma pregunta me hago yo. Si es de la precocida para arepas, o de la amarilla para talos por ejemplo.
      Yo también creo que los haré porque me encantan los gofres y las alternativas al pan y similares.
