- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- 2 eggs, separated
- 2 cups buttermilk

Mix flour, cornmeal, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl. Stir in egg yolks, buttermilk, vegetable oil, chiles, and cheese. Beat egg whites until stiff in a medium bowl using an electric mixer. Fold whites into batter, leaving a few fluffs. Preheat FlipSide® waffle maker. Pour a rounded 1 cup amount of batter onto the center of the bottom grid. Close top and flip waffle maker. Bake until brown and crisp, about 4 to 4 1/2 minutes.
Make it a meal by topping with a hearty chili or stew.
