Spicy Cornbread Waffles

Ever had one of those days when you have worked all day and you feet are sore and all you want to do is sit down and not have to think about anything.  This is a simple recipe you can make as fancy as you want or just plain and simple.  I love a cornbread that is loaded with green chilis, corn and cheese, so if you make it a waffle iron and smother it with chili and cheese I am in heaven.
