  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup cornmeal 
  • 1 tablespoon sugar 
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder 
  • 1 jalapeno, seeded and diced 
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt 
  • 2 cups grated sharp Cheddar 
  • 2 large eggs 
  • 1 1/4 cups buttermilk 
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • Nonstick spray 


In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, cornmeal, sugar, baking powder, jalapeno, salt and 1 cup of the grated cheese.

In a separate mixing bowl, beat the eggs, then whisk in the buttermilk and vegetable oil. Incorporate the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix just until combined.

Heat a waffle iron and spray with nonstick spray. Pour 1 1/2 cups of the batter into the waffle iron and cook until golden brown, about 5 minutes. (Follow the manufacturer's directions. You may need to adjust amount of batter based on your waffle iron.) Transfer the waffles to a wire rack set over a baking sheet. Repeat with the remaining batter.

Just before serving, turn the broiler to low. Scatter the remaining 1 cup grated cheese over the waffles and broil just until the cheese has melted, about 1 minute.
