Preheat oven to 200 degrees Fahrenheit if you’d like to keep waffles warm and crispy until the whole batch is baked.
Preheat waffle iron and brush lightly with canola or vegetable oil or spray with Baker’s Spray. (Or follow your waffle iron’s directions.)
In a small bowl, beat or whisk together liquid ingredients (eggs, milk); set aside.
In a large bowl or measuring cup, stir together the dry ingredients (flour, cornmeal, sugar, salt, pepper, chili powder, baking powder). Pour the liquid ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix briefly just to combine well. Lumps are ok.
Pour 1/2 cup batter onto hot, greased waffle iron and bake as directed–approximately 4 minutes OR as directed by your waffle iron instruction booklet. (As batter sits, it will rise and be more puffy; you might need a bit more than 1/2 cup to make a whole waffle.) Place each waffle right on the warm oven rack to keep warm/crispy while you bake the rest. Repeat with remaining waffle batter.
Serve hot with Green Chile Turkey Gravy, topped with a fried or poached egg, and garnished with a bit more grated cheddar.
