uncooked long-grain white rice
1 1/2 teaspoons
This is a great recipe!! I made a few minor changes and substituted the 1 cup of whole milk with evaporated milk and used sweetened condensed milk instead of the heavy cream. This is the closest I have come to finding a recipe that tastes like my Grandma's!! Thanks!
It's a nice rice pudding, but nothing spectacular. I made it for a crowd and it did not all get eaten. It's good, but not amazing.
SMOOTH & CREAMY! This is not overly sweet. I thought I had made it wrong because it wasn't thick like other rice puddings. I researched Arroz con Leche and found it is "soupier" than American rice puddings. I cooked it a little longer to thicken to my preference, and once it cooled, it was perfect. SMOOTH & CREAMY! Thank you crys7422 for sharing your recipe. I learned something new tonight!
I did as one reviewer and used sweetened condensed milk to replace that 2nd cup of milk. It was very good and made it more rich. If you do this, remember, do not add that 1/3 cup sugar. Try it first.

My family loved this receipe. I omitted the egg, and sugar. I did substitute evap milk for the 1 cup whole milk and used sweetened cond. milk for heavy cream as others suggested.
i love this rice! its so tasty and creamy! Definitely one of my favorites! Thanks, crys 7422!
This recipe was very good, I did take some advise from other reviews and used evaporated milk and sweetened condensed milk. I loved this recipe as a child and remember my mother boiling her water with a few sticks of cinnamon before adding the rice and ommiting the 1/2tsp of ground cinnamon. Overall this is a great Arroz con Leche. Thanks for sharing
