My All-Time Fave

Aroz con Leche, originally uploaded by mzcyn85.
(aka rice with milk)

This is what people call Spanish Rice Pudding. It's a yummy desert or snack that is filled with lots of flavor. There are many variations on how to make Aroz con Leche. Some people eat it hot or cold, make it watery like a drink or make it thick like pudding.

Unfortunately, I've failed many times in making it so I have my lovely mother make it. And I absolutely love it!!!

Main ingredients are:
Cinnamon sticks or powdered cinnamon
Sugar - brown sugar canes or regular sugar

Lemon or Orange peel for a zest of flavor

It is quite easy to prepare but the biggest mistake seems to be not stirring the rice and milk mixture every minute or two to make sure that the rice doesn’t stick to the bottom of the pot, and keeping the heat down very low to avoid burning it.

The times I've tried making it, I've burned it :( So I leave it to my mom to make it.

Having some right now as I blog. LOL.

Good Night!
