Im not sure if this is Mexican or not, but Bobby Flay had someone on one of his shows ( I think from Mexico, or South America) who made a real simple dessert. He took a ripe banana, wrapped it in foil. Grilled it until it was hot. Opened the banana up. Poured some sweetened condensed milk over the banana. Then, sprinkled some cinnamon over the top. I actually tried it and it was very good, and very simple.

I wonder if you could put the sweetened
condensed milk on the banana before
grilling it. Wouldn't it carmelize and make
a nice sauce? Maybe it would burn, I'll
have to try it one of these days.

I just got myself in the mood for it. Too lazy to grill it up, so i just dipped the banana into the condensed milk with cinnamon. Its one of those things that seem too easy and simple, but really works. Just make sure the condensed milk is sweetened :)

And in the same episode, he grilled Mexican grilled shrimp, so Im leaning towards that it is a Mexican thing.

We had arroz con leche for dessert constantly as a child. it's pretty easy from what I remember and topped with a little honey butter and a sprinkling of cinnamon it would be a pretty dish too! here's a similar recipe to what my mother and abuela made for us.

Larry, your banana recipe is TOTALLY authentic. There is a cart that makes the rounds in our neighborhood that sells exactly the same thing - also sweet potatoes done the same way. It is a huge treat here. Of course, flan is also my first choice, but the banana thing is yummy!
