Mince 2 seeded Serrano or Jalapeño peppers and 1 clove of garlic. Add 2 tbsp. freshly squeezed lime juice and salt and peper to taste. Mix everything together and let sit overnight for flavors to meld.

Crepe Cake - I used to make these ALL the time in my last restaurant position. Layer crepes in a springform pan with a variety of fillings, vegetables and cheese, then bake until bubbly. Impressive yet easy.
