La Flan es un popular postre en Mexico. En Mexico flan es lleno con creme!http://www.acemn.com/website/images/flan.jpg photo of Flan! In Brazil Flan is filled with Marc instead of custard. In Mexico sweet flan is very popular. England took flan from Latin america and made it less sweet. I got my information from http://flan.holidaycook.com/ and http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flan.

Comida- salsa

1. Salsas have risen in popularity partly because they are low in cholesterol,fat,and calories.
2. “Salsa” is the Spanish word for sauce.
3. Salsa is a mixture of chopped vegetables, fruits (usually tomatoes) and seasonings that may be cooked or uncooked, is usually not pureed and is served as an accompaniment to a dish.
4. Salsas form a bridge of flavor and texture between the mild cheese of a quesadilla and its flour tortilla base, between the piquant beef in a taco and its corn wrap.
5. Salsa has become the best selling condiment in North America recently pushing tomato ketchup out of the top-selling spotlight.
