Cornbread Waffles with Chicken, Avocado, and Sweet & Spicy Crema


Have you ever had breakfast for dinner? Brinner, we call it, and it can be as simple as scrambled eggs and toast, or something a bit more complicated that leans towards the idea of brunch. I like brinner and my family looks forward to it as a change of pace.

In fact, if they see me plug in the waffle maker at dinnertime, there’re downright excited! But I don’t want our dinner/brinner to be overly sweet, so if I’m making waffles, I’ll skew them to the savory side.

My latest brinner creation is crispy cornbread waffles, topped with roast chicken (I relied on a rotisserie chicken to make it weeknight-friendly!), ripe avocado and tomato chunks and of course, fresh cilantro. What brings it all together is two kinds of cheese — Ranchero® Queso Fresco and Cotija Cheese — and a final slightly-sweet, spicy drizzle of Crema Mexicana at the end.

It’s a flavor explosion on the fork. Perfecto!
