At out Mexican Christmas Eve Feast we served Flan for dessert. Its my youngest sister’s favorite dessert and it just so happened to fit the Mexican food criteria! It is a nice change from the typical desserts we eat. Flan is a sweet custard dessert. If you haven’t given it a try, you really need to! It is SO easy to make and tastes great!
