Chef and I paired up for a México/Latin America theme and this was just one of our ideas that came to life playing with all the fun flavors we chose.

One time I was trapped in a skyscraper for the holidays. Little did I know Russians had taken hostages on the 30th floor. Through my rigorous training as an NY police officer I was able to dismantle the situation and save Christmas. Yippee Ki Yay.
