    I have always loved the Cocada pudding that is in the Hungry Man "Mexican" Dinner. I have even been known to buy the dinner only for the light and sweet pudding that melts in your mouth. I have seen recipes for cocada pudding, but when I tried to make it, my pudding turned into more of a macaroon sludge. Please help if you know how to make this wonderful pudding.

    You probably did not add the correct chemicals

    I have never eaten this - what does it taste like?

    Here are two that are in my cookbook. They were posted in a forum and not the database, so I added them for B&B who did post them. The second one is from Rick Bayless.

    1 Pkg. vanilla pudding-Cook and serve only, do not use instant.
    3 Cups milk
    1/2 Cup sweetened coconut
    1 drop Lorann's Almond oil

    In sauce pan combine 1 cup milk and coconut and bring to a simmer, stirring constantly. Let simmer for 1 minute.
    Add remaining milk and add 1 drop Lorann's almond oil, if you use the almond flavoring found in most stores it will not provide the distinct flavor as found in the TV dinners. When using professional grade flavorings, you only need a drop or two, any more and it will be overpowering. (You can get a bottle on line for about $2.00 with free shipping on most auction sites.)
    Stir in pudding mix and bring to boil.
    Take off of heat and pour into bowls.

    You can add cinnamon to the mixture if you like or for a change of pace.
    Garnish with toasted almonds
