Classic flan

Calling flan a caramel custard is to do it an injustice. No mere pudding, this traditional Spanish dessert is the crème de la crème of sweets. Of course, not surprisingly, there are a hundred and one variations on the basic recipe. But sometimes the original is so much more than one can expect, to alter it is to approach cooking blasphemy.


Enchiladas are filled and rolled tortillas covered in a spicy tomato sauce and cheese baked in the oven until the cheese melts. Enchiladas are one of the most versatile Mexican dishes because the filling can be virtually anything.
