Cinco de Mayo and Coconut Flan

Celebrate Cinco de Mayo by getting in the spirit and making some mexican food. OK I am going to cheat and I bought some carnitas and rice and beans from Costco(it is so good and so easy, just microwave and go). That will leave me time to make the Coconut Flan!! I made this a few years ago (ok it has been more than a few years since Heather moved) when I went all out with homemade enchiladas, rice, beans and margaritas. Don't be intimadtaed by the "expert" in the difficulty box, and don't worry about using tuna cans....I made one large flan in a pie shell. So follow the directions in the recipe, but use a pie shell. Don't worry if your carmel congeals a little in the pie shell it will loosen upon cooking. Are you up to the challenge?


  1. I know this is a delectable combination for you: coconut and custard.

    Would love to try it as I am a big flan fan (say that 5 times real fast).
    Well done, K.

    Bon appetit!

  2. Boy do I miss Kristy meals! I love this recipe. I've made it a few times. I use those little clear glass ramekins.

    Sooooo sad that my Costco doesn't sell carnitas and rice. And those raw tortillas were awesome, too.

    Happy Mother's Day!
