  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder

For Huevos Rancheros:

  • 8 Eggland's Best eggs
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 large chilie in adobo sauce, chopped
  • 1/2 large onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 28 ounce can diced tomatoes, with juices
  • 15 oz. can of black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 2 oz. canned diced green chilies
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cocoa powder
  • Shredded cheddar cheese and fresh cilantro for garnish



Preheat waffle iron per manufacturer's instructions.

In a large mixing bowl, mix all dry ingredients and blend well; add jalapeno, buttermilk, vegetable oil, and eggs; mix well and add cheddar cheese.

Pour 1/2 cup of batter into your waffle maker and cook until golden brown; repeat until all batter has been used. (Note: Depending on the size of your waffle maker, you may need to use more or less batter per waffle)

Huevos Rancheros:

In a large pan, heat oil over medium heat; add onion, adobo chilies and garlic; saute for 5 minutes or until softened.

Add green chilies, tomatoes, tomato juice (reserved from can), beans, salt, cumin, garlic powder, chili powder and cocoa.

Stir well and cover partially; allow mixture to simmer for 20 minutes to thicken slightly.

Add eggs into sauce by cracking them into a small bowl and sliding them into the pan gently; repeat until all eggs are in pan. (Note: Depending on the size of your pan, you may need to cook the eggs a few at a time. If so, remove eggs after they have cooked fully and repeat this step until all eggs are cooked)

Cover pan and allow to simmer for approximately 4 minutes, or until eggs are set.

To serve, top each waffle with sauce mixture from pan, and egg.
