It's time for another Thrifty Thursday with Megan Myrdal, from the Northarvest Bean Growers Association with an easy and affordable recipe.

Cheesy Cornbread Waffles with Black Beans, Salsa & Sour Cream

Servings: 4


1 cup AP flour

1 cup cornmeal

1 tablespoon sugar

1 tablespoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

2 eggs

1 ¼ cup buttermilk

¼ cup vegetable oil

1 cup sharp cheddar cheese


1 cup black beans, drained, rinsed and warmed through

1/2 cup salsa

¼ cup sour cream (or plain Greek yogurt)

1 avocado, sliced

Hot sauce (optional)


Whisk flour, cornmeal, sugar, baking powder, salt and cheddar cheese in a large mixing bowl. In a separate mixing bowl, whisk eggs, then whisk in the buttermilk and vegetable oil. Incorporate the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix just until combined.

Preheat a waffle iron and coat with cooking spray. Pour some of the batter into the waffle iron and cook until golden brown, about 5 minutes. Transfer the waffles to a wire rack set on a baking sheet. Repeat with the remaining batter.
