13 ways to incorporate more condensed milk into your life

You can eat it straight from the tin; you can also use it in these sweet and savoury recipes.

Churros with dulce de leche
There's no denying the allure of sweetened condensed milk, that tin of goodness that tastes more "sweet" than it does "milk"; that creamy, syrupy nectar with its caramel overtones. It's a critical ingredient to Latin America's dulce de leche – see Porteño's milk flan with dulce de leche or our churros recipe with dulce de leche – and various tres leches (three milks) cakes. It works wonders in savoury recipes too, like David Thompson's Thai grilled pork skewers.
