Place flour, cornmeal, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a large mixing bowl; stir to combine. Add shredded cheddar and chopped chives; stir. Place the milk, oil, eggs, and hot sauce a separate bowl; stir with a whisk to blend. Add to the dry ingredients and stir until smooth. Let batter rest 5 minutes before using. Preheat your Cuisinart ® Waffle Iron on setting #3. When preheated, green indicator light will illuminate. Pour 1/3 cup batter just a little behind the center of the lower grid; allow batter to spread towards edges for 5 seconds. Close lid of waffle iron – green indicator light will turn off. When green indicator light turns on again, waffle is ready. Open lid and carefully remove baked waffle. Repeat with remaining batter. For best results, serve immediately. You may keep waffles warm until ready to serve in a 200° F oven.
