Arroz con Leche

It took me a long time to be able to enjoy this dish. My mom was the best at making this. She made it usually in the winter time and I can remember the day that I could say I loved it. It was cold and I was in high school. She always made it with cinnamon sticks in it and that was the one thing I did not like...having to pick out the little sticks. So now when I make it I use ground cinnamon and it could out great. Thanks mom for a great dish that me and my family love!!!

Boil Milk:
  1. 1 quart whole milk (= 4 cups; or 2% milk)
  2. 2 cans carnation Evaporated milk
  3. 1 cup water
  4. Add 3 sticks cinnamon to milk or ½ a teaspoon of ground cinnamon
  5. 1 ½ cups sugar
Boil Rice:
In a separate pot boil rice.
  1. 1 ½ cups rice
  2. 1 cup water
  3. Boil for 10 minutes (do not cover)

When rice is half done add to boiling milk

Cook on low heat for 1 hour. Do not walk away from this on the stove. Be careful not to burn it. You need to be stirring it so that it does not stick to the bottom of the pot. Do not try to rush needs a full hour to cook and then about 15 minutes to set.

Here's to some good food!
