Caribbean Shrimp Stuffed Waffle Pops & Mango Cilantro Dip

Caribbean Shrimp Stuffed Waffles 11a wm

Tomorrow I’ll be a guest on the Rachael Ray Show for “Waffle Week”!  It was an incredible experience to be part of “Waffle Wars” with one of my favorite original recipes, Crunchy Chicken Stuffed Waffle Pops!  It was a fabulous experience, but I can’t say much about it until after the show airs.  To celebrate “Waffle Week” I thought I’d come up with a new fun waffle recipe!  These Caribbean Shrimp Stuffed Waffle Pops are just as fun as my Crunchy Chicken Stuffed Waffle Pops but a whole new twist.  Caribbean seasoned shrimp are coated in a corn waffle batter that has jalapeños and onions then paired with a sweet mango cilantro dipping sauce.  These “pops” are sweet and spicy and great as an appetizer or entrée!  To see me and the Crunchy Chicken Stuffed Waffle Pops tomorrow check out the Rachael Ray Show page for the channel/time for your area!  I’m also working on a few upcoming giveaways but enter my current GIVEAWAY before time runs out. Don’t forget to join us on FACEBOOK for more food fun and more info about the Rachael Ray Show and my winning recipes!

Crunchy Chicken Stuffed Waffle Pops & Maple Dijon Dip

As you may remember, I recently went to the Blogher Food Conference in Atlanta. When I got home a lot of people asked me if I went to certain restaurants, museums, tourist attractions, etc. I thought I did a lot while I was there but apparently missed a lot!  Geez, I really need to get back to Atlanta (looking at flights now…)! Someone asked me if I had chicken and waffles while I was there. Nope, no chicken and waffles! Darn, darn, DARN! Apparently Gladys Knight’s restaurant is the place to go, but never been there, so I can’t say (I think we drove by one of them, but not sure?).  Anyways, I’m all for fried chicken and waffles, but kind of hard to get the chicken and waffle in one bite isn’t it???  Next thing I knew, I was reminiscing about living in Iowa and going to the Iowa State Fair where you can find just about anything served on a “stick” (why my brain jumped from Atlanta to Iowa, I have no idea!).  Suddenly my Crunchy Chicken Stuffed Waffle Pops were born! Chicken and waffles all in one bite! These are adorable and ohhhhhh so yummy!!!
