Rice Pudding -- Mexican Style, Arroz Con Leche

65 mins (prep 5, cooking 60)
10 ingredients
6 servings
This arroz con leche recipe comes from a calender cookbook called Mexico, The Beautiful Cookbook. My Mother-in-law was about to throw it out and I found this wonderful rice pudding recipe in it. It is by far the best I have ever tasted. I omit the the lime and orange peel but I am sure it's probably great with it. uuum, uuum good. *I have made no changes to the recipe but want to make a note that many Food.com users state a frustration with the stirring time so feel free to turn the heat up a little but I posted the recipe exactly as it was on the calendar. I apologize to anyone that has been frustrated. The end result is always wonderful though : ) THANKS for all the wonderful reviews, it is very much appreciated. Enjoy!!!
