Mexican Waffles - Part Of Eats Week3

Mexican Waffles?  What could that be?  Well, I'm here to tell you that it could possibly be the best breakfast food I have ever made.  There was sweet and spicy.  There was cool and heat.  Then of course there was the fact that is was perfect for a recovery meal. As you know I love breakfast food and it doesn't matter what time of the day I eat it, as it always tastes great.  After seeing the show The Best Thing I Ever Ate I was inspired to make these waffles, but I couldn't make them in the middle of the week because it had to be a treat.  The day came when on Saturday I had a 3.5 hour ride and 20 minute race pace run.  I was so excited about these waffles that I set a PR on my 60 mile course by getting it done in 3h12m.  Normally I would have kept going for the remaining 18 minutes but the waffles were calling my name.  I got the run done and then practically raced home to get going on the waffles.  It was perfect. Here is the recipe for the Mexican Waffles: Ingredients: 1/2c Grapevine Grains Pancake Mix (click on the link to order and enter CTER for a 10% discount), 1 ear roasted corn on the cob, 1/4c black beans (drained and rinsed), 0.5c water, 1 medium tomato (sliced), 2 thin slices red onion, 50g cucumber, 1 small avocado, 1 small jalapeno, bunch cilantro, 1c water Nutritional Information: 381 calories, 75g Carbs, 4g Fat, 14g Protein Directions:
