Ingredients

SALSA
1 medium mango, peeled, pitted and diced
1 small avocado, peeled, pitted and diced
1 lime, juiced (about 2 tablespoons of fresh lime juice)
2 scallions, chopped
1/2 teaspoon ground smoked paprika
1/4 teaspoon red chili flakes
1/4 teaspoon salt
WAFFLES
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup milk
2 eggs, beaten
2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted and cooled
FRIED EGGS
4 eggs for frying
1/2 teaspoon olive oil or butter
a pinch of salt and pepper

Instructions

Salsa: In a small glass bowl mix together the diced mango, avocado, lime juice, scallions, smoked paprika, red chili flakes and salt. Taste and adjust seasonings. Chill until ready to serve.

Waffles: Preheat your waffle iron.

In medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, sugar, chili powder and salt. In a small separate bowl, whisk together the milk, eggs and melted butter. Pour the wet ingredients into the bowl with the dry ingredients and mix until just combined. Pour the waffle batter into your preheated waffle iron. This batter is enough to make 4-5 thick square waffles, depending on the size of your waffle iron, your yield may vary.

Fried Eggs: Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-low heat. Crack 4 eggs into the skillet and cook until whites are set but the yolks are still runny. About 4-5 minutes. (You may need to cook 2 eggs at a time, depending on the size of your pan).

Assemble by spreading a touch of butter on each waffle, then top with a spoonful of mango-avocado salsa and the fried egg. Add a pinch of salt and pepper on the top of each egg.
