Gather these ingredients for your first step
4 cups of water
1 cup of rice
2 sticks of cinnamon
1 12 oz of evaporated milk
14 oz lechera , sugar one cup taste before adding , ground cinnamon add a sprinkle on top
3 cups of milk
In a saucepan over medium heat, you have to place water, rice and a cinnamon stick. Bring to a boil, cover then simmer for 15 minutes or until the rice is tender.
Once rice is tender stir in the milk.
Let the 3 cups of dairy milk boil for about 5 minutes and then remove from heat before adding the rest of the milks(lechera, condensed).
Now you stir in the evaporated milk.
Along with la lechera ( condensed milk).
Then you add sugar but first you might want to taste it before adding the sugar since la lechera makes the mixture sweet. Add sugar to taste.
Return to slight simmer and cook for additional 10-15 minutes or until most of the liquid is absorbed and rice has a pudding-like consistency.
Serve hot topped with a sprinkle of cinnamon (but it tastes great cold also). Enjoy!
