Ingredients

Directions

For the Red Pepper Base: Sweat garlic, shallots, peppers and jalapeno. Generously season with salt and pepper. Cook completely, until everything is very tender, with no color. Puree in a blender until very smooth. Check seasoning. Line a sieve with double layer of cheesecloth. Slowly pour the pepper puree into the sieve and hold in a bowl for the excess liquid to drain into. Allow puree to drain overnight in the refrigerator.

For the flan: Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F.

Combine the cream, milk, eggs, egg yolks and 1 cup of the red pepper puree. Whisk everything together and add salt and pepper, to taste. Pour into 4-ounce ramekins (or any size smaller if desired). Set ramekins in a 4-inch deep baking pan and fill the pan with water 1/3 to 1/2 way up the ramekins. Cover with foil. Bake for about 45 minutes. Timing varies greatly depending on oven. To check for doneness, poke the centers of the flans with a small, clean knife. The knife should be relatively clean (not necessarily completely clean) without any liquid on the knife.
