thebottom of the pan. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place eggs,
yolks,vanilla, milks and cream cheese in a blender or food processor
andprocess at least 5 minutes.Pour mixture into the flan pan and place
in larger baking pan in thecenter of the oven. Pour boiling water
halfway up the sides of the pan.Bake 1 hour and 10 minutes or until
knife inserted in the center comesout clean. Watch carefully and cover
the flan with foil if the top seemsto be getting too brown. Remove from
oven, cool to room temperature,then cut around the edges and invert
onto a deep-sided serving plate.Serve each piece with some of the
caramel syrup.Note: Flan can be made as long as three days before

pan until ready toserve. "Published in Ellen Brown's Southwest Tastes
cookbook (HP Books,1987), taken from the PBS television series,Great
Chefs of the West. "LP note: Ninfa is a legend in Houston. She started
with a familyrestaurant over in an industrial section of town. It
became very popularand she expanded to form a popular chain. Ninfa has
now retired, Ibelieve, and the chain has had some financial bad times
and has, Ithink, declared bankruptcy. Still it flourishes at many
locations, andwe eat at one in our neighborhood weekly.By Lou Parris
