Arroz con Leche
Mexican version of rice pudding with a touch of cinnamon
Servings: 4 servings
- 1 cup long grain white rice
- 2 cups water
- 2 cinnamon sticks
- 3 cups milk *see note
- ¼-½ cup sugar sweeten to taste; **see note
Place saucepan over medium low heat and add rice, water, and cinnamon sticks.
Cover and cook until rice is cooked and water is absorbed, about 15-20 minutes.
Add milk and sugar, stir to combine, cover and cook for additional 15 minutes.
Cook longer for a thicker arroz con leche resembling rice pudding. Add more sugar or sweetener of choice if needed.
*You use milk of choice, dairy or non. I have tried it with almond milk with success.
**Substitute sweetener of choice, just add a little at a time and adjust to taste. Traditionally sweetened condensed milk use used to sweeten.
