Flan con queso

I got this recipe from one of Andy's friends from Puerto Rico.  I love this flan and it is super easy.  I wanted to put it here so I don't lose it.

Flan con queso
1 can evaporated milk
1can sweetened condensed milk
8 oz. cream cheese
2 eggs

Blend all ingredients until combined and smooth (mostly).

In saucepan melt sugar.  Just put sugar in a saucepan pan over medium heat and stir.  And stir and stir and stir.  Then stir some more and eventually it will kind of clump together and then melt.  As soon as it is all melted pour it into the pan* your going to cook the flan in.   Then pour your blended flan ingredients on top of melted sugar.

Bake at 350* for about an hour in water bath.

Once cooked run knife around the edges to loosen the flan from the pan.  Then put a plate on top and invert so flan comes out of pan onto plate.  Use a plate slightly larger than pan so the liquid that will come out on top has  a little room to run and not make a huge mess.  The put in fridge to cool.  This is much better cold than warm.

*I just use a round cake pan to cook this in.  It works pretty well.  Don't forget to put it in water bath as you cook it though.  The easiest way I have found is to put my cake pan in a disposable roaster type pan.  Then pour in my sugar and flan and then transfer to warm oven and add water once its in oven being careful not to splash any into the flan.
