  • Beaten egg white can be "folded" into the custard mixture or placed on top. My family referred to have it folded in and that's how I've had it in most New Mexico restaurants. Rancho de Chimayo north of Santa Fe and Pete's Café in Belen serve great Natillas. - 6/3/13

  • I agree....this recipe does not do justice to the original Natillas and is nothing more than boxed pudding topped w/spices. Real Natillass is all natural and delicious! Note that the Spanish did not enter New Mexico until August of 1598 (414 yrs). Columbus did not leave Europe until 1492. - 12/11/12

  • This recipe is NOT natillas. My family has been in New Mexuco for hundreds of years, and natillas is a family tradition. This is simply boxed pudding--period. Natillas is a custard, always topped with stiffly beaten egg whites. - 7/16/11
