The Ultimate Savory Waffle

In my opinion, this is the perfect brunch dish.  Hearty and savory, this dish has everything I’m looking for in brunch.  The waffle is crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside and lightly flavored of corn and jalapeno .  On top, “refried” black beans, a fried egg, pico de gallo, avocado, and lime crema.  Delicious.
