Once the meat is brown, add the diced tomatoes, tomato paste, and tomato sauce. Add all the cans of beans. Add ½–1 cup of water if the mixture is too thick.

Let simmer for 1 hour, or transfer to a slow cooker and simmer on low overnight or on high for 4 hours.

Serve on top of cornbread waffles.

For Cornbread Waffle:
Pre-heat a waffle maker. Once the waffle maker is heated, butter it.

While the waffle maker is heating up, mix all the waffle ingredients in a large bowl.

Place the batter in the waffle maker and close it. Flip it when the light indicates to flip it.

Remove the waffle when it is done cooking. Let cool for 5 minutes.

Top with chili and garnishes, and enjoy!
