Why I Love This Recipe
Ingredients You'll Need
6 plum tomatoes, halved
2 teaspoons olive oil
1 15-ounce can black beans or small white beans, rinsed and drained
1/3 cup sliced green onions
2 tablespoons snipped fresh cilantro or parsley
2 tablespoons lime juice
1 to 2 serrano peppers, chopped
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 8-1/2-ounce package corn muffin mix
1/2 cup fresh or frozen whole kernel corn
1/4 cup plain fat-free yogurt
Fresh cilantro sprigs (optional)
1. For salsa, brush tomato halves with 1 teaspoon of the olive oil; place on the unheated rack of a broiler pan.
Broil 4 to 5 inches from the heat for 8 to 10 minutes or until tomatoes begin to char, turning once.
Remove from broiler pan and cool slightly; coarsely chop.
2. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl combine the remaining 1 teaspoon olive oil, beans, green onions, cilantro, lime juice, serrano pepper, and salt.
Stir in tomatoes and any juices.
3. For waffles, prepare corn muffin mix according to package directions, except stir corn into batter. (If necessary, add 1 to 2 additional tablespoons milk to thin batter.)
4. Pour about half of the batter onto the grid of a preheated, lightly greased waffle baker. Close lid quickly; do not open until done.
Bake according to manufacturer?s directions. When done, use a fork to lift waffle off grid; keep warm.
Repeat with remaining batter.
5. To serve, cut waffles in half. Divide warm waffles among 4 serving plates.
