What a quick and easy twist on the usual Mexican fare. This recipe is perfect for a build-your-own party for teens, and I’ve also served it as a brunch dish—to rave reviews.—Trisha Kruse, Eagle, Idaho


  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 cup salsa
  • 1 can (4 ounces) chopped green chilies

  • 8 frozen waffles
  • Shredded cheddar cheese, shredded lettuce, chopped tomatoes, cubed avocado, salsa and sour cream, optional


  1. In a large skillet, cook beef over medium heat until no longer pink; drain. Stir in the salsa, chilies and taco seasoning. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer for 5 minutes.

    I thought this was a great idea. The only thing I changed was to make my own waffles using a mexican cornbread recipe. They were great!
