Waffles and salsa verde and corn. It seems like the last few things in an empty fridge to an untrained eye but it’s an opportunity for a combo packed with vibrant flavors!

When creating a recipe using LA VICTORIA®Thick’N Chunky Salsa Verde, I knew I wanted it to be different yet simple, as it’s bold, inviting, and packed with plenty of jalapeno peppers. My strange yet creative culinary wheels began turning and I decided I needed to make a spicy savory waffle. Think simplified elote corn meets breakfast-staple. I started with a chicken bone broth waffle, lathered on some mashed avocado, sea salt, black pepper, garlic powder, arugula, and LA VICTORIA® Salsa (which is my go-to salsa since it’s made with real, simple, qualityingredients), a dripping egg, freeze dried roasted corn for added crunch, and of course more LA VICTORIA®Salsa Verde. The best part is that this meal can be eaten for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Grab your waffle maker some salsa and get to cooking – your taste buds will be richly rewarded!

Salsa Verde Savory Waffle: (makes two servings)

2 cooked bone broth waffles (I used 1 cup quick pancake mix + 1/2 cup chicken bone broth + 1/2 cup water)
1/2 avocado
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp garlic powder
Handful arugula
1/3 cup LA VICTORIA® Thick’N Chunky Salsa Verde (or more)
1 tbsp avocado oil
2 fried eggs
2 tbsp freeze dried roasted corn

Directions:

Start with a toasted waffle on a cutting board. Mash 1/4 cup of avocado onto the toasted waffle, cover with half the seasoning, 2-3 tbsps Thick’N Chunky Salsa Verde, half the arugula, and 1/2 tbsp avocado oil. 
Place one fried egg on top, 1 tbsp freeze dried roasted corn, and more Thick’N Chunky Salsa Verde on top. Repeat with second waffle.
Now grab your fork and dive in!

I love pulling traditional flavors into my own kitchen experiments and LA VICTORIA® offersdelicious, authentic, flavorful Mexican sauces and salsas inspired by a century-old family recipe. The waffle is a worthy vessel for these mouth-watering savory flavors and dynamic textures. You can find LA VICTORIA®products in the Mexican food aisle of most major grocers along the West Coast, including Safeway, Albertson’s, and Ralph’s.
