Goats cheese and sundried tomatoes
Mix butter with grated garlic, salt and pepper then spread on your crepe.
Then add some goats cheese and sundried tomatoes, or cherry tomatoes for a less intense flavor.
Place in an oven so your crepe is warm and toasty.

You’ll need two crepes each per serving. Pan-fry some chicken breast and season with garlic, salt, pepper and onions. Then add some sliced pickled jalapenos and stir.
Spread some garlic butter on the crepes, then place the chicken and jalapeno on top. Add cheese.
Then place the second crepe on top, then place in a heated oven until its golden and crispy, and the cheese has melted. Serve with a side of guacamole.
Philly cheesesteak crepes
Thinly slice some beef and fry with onions, salt and pepper. Add some Maggi or Knorr cubes for extra flavour.
