Arroz con leche is one of the most comforting and delicious foods, (or drink), I grew up with. It translates to rice with milk and that is exactly what it is. Think of it as a Mexican rice pudding that is very simple but so satisfying. Growing up, my mom would make this arroz con leche in a way that would make it easy for us to drink and eat the rice. Just like many other dishes in Mexican cuisine, arroz con leche can be very different depending on where your family is from. Also, arroz con leche is not just Mexican but there are various other Latin countries that enjoy their own versions of it as well.CONTINUE READING
