Waffles Gone Wild #WaffleWeek2016

Yum
This is Waffle Week and a group of bloggers came together to share with you a variety of waffle recipes that you will love!  Waffles are so easy to make and with a little imagination, you can do almost anything with them, from sweet to savory!
Waffles are very useful vehicles to transport your favorite ingredients.  You might know that the ice cream cone was originally a waffle folded into a cone.  This was done at the 1904 World's Fair that was held in St. Louis.  
Did you know that the first Waffle House opened in 1955 in Georgia?  Once when my family and I were traveling to Hilton Head, we got caught in a blizzard in southern Tennessee and was trapped for four days there.  Every meal we ate was at the Waffle House next to our hotel.  Great memory!


This waffle that I made will leave you a little W I L D.  Why?  It has taco meat, sweet corn, black beans and cheddar cheese in it for a start!  How does that sound to you?  A little wild and crazy?  I thought so, but the taste is definitely fantastic!


Serve these with a scoop of taco meat, shredded cheese, and sour cream for a completely wonderful meal.  To make this a family event, you can separate the batter and the add ins and let the kids stir in what they want in their waffle. The creations are endless!
