Rice with Milk/Arroz con Leche
This rice pudding is quite sweet, which is just the way Mexicans like it. If you prefer less sweetness, use ½ cup condensed milk with ½ cup regular milk.
– ½ c. white rice, uncooked
– ½ cinnamon stick
– 1½ c. water
– 1 c. sweetened condensed milk
– 2½ tbsp. raisins
– Cinnamon for garnish.
Put rice, cinnamon stick, and water in a saucepan. Bring to a boil quickly. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer until water is absorbed (about 15 to 20 minutes).
Add milk and raisins. Cook, uncovered, until milk is absorbed into rice (10 to 15 minutes).
Remove from heat, take out cinnamon stick, and cover. Let sit for a few minutes. Sprinkle with cinnamon.
Serve rice hot or cold.
