I’ve had this recipe for Dulce Poblano de Camote – Mexican Sweet Potato Pudding for many years from a friend when I was doing a Mexican themed dinner and he called his mom in Mexico and got a bunch of authentic Mexican recipes for me. Some of the recipes were also sourced from other places and can’t really remember which source this came from..all I know is that it is utterly delicious and as far as desserts go, relatively guilt free.
