Corn Waffles Rancheros

Changes: used regular corn meal (couldn't find blue); used prepackaged tomatillo salsa



1 large egg yolk, pasteurized if desired

¼ cup chipotle peppers in adobo

1 tsp lemon juice

1 small clove garlic, coarsely chopped

¼ cup avocado oil

⅛ teaspoon salt


1 ¼ cups cornmeal

½ cup masa harina

2 tsp baking powder

¼ tsp salt

1 cup cashew milk

3 tbsp vegan butter, melted

1 ½ teaspoons pure maple syrup

1 large egg

1 tablespoon avocado oil

To Serve

Tomatillo salsa

1 15 oz can of black #beans

4 eggs

Sliced avocado,

Lime wedges

Fresh cilantro


To prepare aioli: Combine egg yolk, chipotles, lemon juice and chopped garlic in a food processor. Puree until smooth. With the motor running, drizzle in 1/4 cup oil. Season with 1/8 teaspoon salt. Refrigerate until ready to use.

To prepare waffles: Place a baking sheet in the oven; preheat to 200°F. Whisk cornmeal, masa harina, baking powder and salt in large bowl. Whisk milk, butter, maple syrup and 1 egg in a medium bowl. Whisk the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients until smooth. Let the batter rest for 5 minutes to thicken.

Coat a waffle iron with cooking spray and preheat. Spoon in enough batter to cover 3/4 of the surface (about 2/3 cup for an 8-by-8-inch waffle iron). Cook until the waffle is crisp and golden brown, 2 to 4 minutes. Transfer the waffle to the baking sheet in the oven. Repeat with the remaining batter.

Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Crack in the remaining 4 eggs and cook to desired doneness, 1 1/2 to 2 minutes for a runny yolk and 3 1/2 to 4 minutes for a firmer yolk.

Top the waffles with the eggs, aioli, salsa and beans. Serve with avocado, lime wedges and cilantro.
