These churro waffles with chorizo are a special way to start any day. Totally decadent, this waffle with cinnamon and sugar is a real crowd pleaser.


Units Scale

2 c buttermilk

3 eggs

6 T melted butter

1 T vanilla

1 T brown sugar

2 c flour

2 t baking powder

1/2 t salt

1/2 t cinnamon

8 oz chorizo, cooked and crumbled and blotted well


1 T cinnamon

1/2 c to 3/4 c sugar

6 T melted butter

Ancho Chile Mezcal Maple Syrup:

3/4 c maple syrup

1/2 t ancho chile powder

1 t mezcal swirled into measuring cup, pour the extra back into the bottle


In a large mixing bowl, whisk together buttermilk, eggs, melted butter, vanilla and brown sugar.

Add flour, baking powder, salt and cinnamon. Whisk to combine.

Stir in cooked chorizo and allow mixture to sit for 10 minutes.

Make the cinnamon sugar by combining the sugar and cinnamon and pour onto a flat plate so you can dip the cooked waffles into it.

Heat the waffle iron. I use 1/4 c of batter per waffle and my iron takes about 90 seconds to bake 2.

Upon removing waffles, brush both sides with melted butter and then dip into the cinnamon sugar.

Serve with maple syrup or chile mezcal syrup.

To make the syrup, swish the mezcal in a measuring cup and pour the leftover back into the bottle. Add the chile powder and the maple syrup and whisk together. Before serving heat the syrup for 1 minute in the microwave.
