Arroz Con Leche Recipe

Arroz con leche always reminds me of the matriarchs who surrounded me when I was growing up. For example, my sister’s suegra (mother-in-law) made it like classic pudding. On the other hand, my own mother-in-law makes it a bit runnier and with raisins. Finally, my mother makes it with a sort of in-between texture. The recipe below makes for a delicious pudding texture. If you prefer it runnier, you can certainly add more milk.

Ingredients

  • 1 can condensed milk
  • 1 cup rice
  • ½ cup raisins
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 2 cups water
  • Ground cinnamon, to taste
  • One cup milk

Directions:

  • Firstly, rinse the rice well.
  • Secondly, bring 2 cups of water with a cinnamon stick to boil over medium heat.
  • Once boiling, add the rice.
  • Once it all boils, lower the heat to low, cover, and allow to simmer for 10-15 minutes.
  • Keep an eye on the rice. The goal is for it to absorb the liquid.
  • Once the water is all absorbed into the rice, add 1 cup milk. Stir.
  • Now, add condensed milk slowly. Stir well.
  • Cover the rice, and allow to continue to simmer on low heat.
  • After about 40 minutes, add raisins and stir.
  • Once cooked, transfer to a glass bowl and sprinkle ground cinnamon over it.
  • Enjoy with hot chocolate or cafe de olla!
