1 cup rice – I used brown because that’s all I have
2 cups milk
1 can sweetened condensed milk
dash of salt
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup raisins – optional
First combine the rice, milk, salt, cinnamon, cloves and vanilla and let sit for 1 hour. Then, bring to a boil. Stir. Once it’s boiling, turn it down to a simmer, cover and proceed to simmer for 55 minutes. You are cooking it like “normal” rice to this point.
Check it in 55 minutes, most of the milk should be absorbed and the rice should be relatively soft. I grew up with arroz con leche that had a “bite” to it, so I don’t want it too soft.
Add condensed milk and raisins. Stir and continue to heat thoroughly.
Optional – If rice is still too hard add a little more milk and simmer until soft.
Serve hot or cold with a sprinkle of cinnamon on top
Today’s eats were kind of tragic outside of that. I need to keep track of everything for my nutrition class and realized I easily snack on 600 calories of randomness in the afternoon most days. Oh, and I’m more bored than hungry at that point.
Okay, off to think…
See you in the morning!
