How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Melt 2 tablespoons butter in 6-quart saucepan until sizzling; add ground beef, onion, bell pepper, 1 teaspoon salt and pepper. Cook over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, until meat is browned. Drain off fat, if necessary.

  2. STEP 2

    Stir in all remaining chili ingredients. Bring to a full boil; reduce to a simmer. Simmer 30-40 minutes or until flavors have combined and mixture has thickened.

  3. STEP 3

    Heat waffle iron.

  4. STEP 4

    Combine 1/4 cup butter and sugar in bowl; beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in sour cream and milk. Add all remaining waffle ingredients except cheese. Beat at low speed just until well mixed.

  5. STEP 5

    Spray waffle iron with nonstick cooking spray. Pour 2/3 cup batter into waffle iron. Cook according to manufacturer's directions.

  6. STEP 6

    Remove waffle from waffle iron; immediately top waffle with 2 slices cheese. Cover loosely with aluminum foil while preparing other waffles.

  7. STEP 7

    Cut each waffle in half; top with 1 cup chili and sour cream, if desired.

Tip #1

Sizes of waffle irons vary. Follow your waffle iron instructions for the best amount of filling.
