Use leftover cooked white rice to make an easy arroz con leche, similar to rice pudding. This sweet, flavorful rice dessert cooks quickly on the stove. If you don't have leftover rice, use uncooked rice and let it sit with the spices and milk for an hour before cooking. This allows the flavors to make a rich and flavorful dessert.
Things You'll Need
- 2 cups cooked white rice
- 1 can evaporated milk
- 1 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup raisins
- 1 Tablespoon vanilla extract
- 1 cinnamon stick
- whole milk
- Medium saucepan
Add the leftover white rice, evaporated milk, sugar, cinnamon stick and raisins to a medium saucepan. Stir together until fully combined.
Cook over medium heat until the mixture comes to a boil. If you need more liquid, add regular milk so the rice won't be too thick.
Test the thickness by stirring with a wooden spoon. Turn the heat off and add the vanilla extract when it is thick enough to suit you. Stir thoroughly and serve.
Tips & Warnings
- Sprinkle ground cinnamon on each serving.
