It’s holiday time and that means enjoying the most delicious treats. Am I right? The holidays are my favorite, especially when it comes to spending time with family and enjoying all the yummy food. My grandmother Theresa used to make some of my favorite things during the holidays. She passed a very long time ago at an early age of 60, so my mom picked up where she left off and continued the traditions. But in February 2015 she also was taken from us and the holidays just aren’t the same.

Although the holidays are tough without my mother and grandmother Theresa around, I keep the traditions going for my own little family (Andrew and I). Arroz con Leche was probably one of my favorite treats over the holidays along with hot chocolate. Andrew loves trying new dishes that I make and I love sharing my culture with him.

Arroz con Leche is a very simple yet delicious dessert that anyone can make no matter what your cooking skills. It just takes a little time and patience but so worth it. I always helped my grandmother stir the arroz (rice) while she tended to other yummy treats. So you’ll want some company and some NESTLÉ® LA LECHERA® Sweetened Condensed Milk. I love using La Lechera for dessert dishes because it’s a tradition and that’s what my grandmother and mother used in the kitchen.

Directions

Add water, rice, and the cinnamon sticks in a medium saucepan over high heat.

Bring to a boil and cook uncovered until rice is tender. I cooked it for about 15 mins.

Place rice in a colander to strain out the excess water and remove the cinnamon sticks. Return the rice back to the saucepan and add La Lechera Sweetened Condensed Milk, evaporated milk, vanilla extract, and milk. Bring to a bowl then reduce to low heat and cook uncovered until mixture is thick. I cooked it for about 20 mins.

**Important-You will need to stir constantly to avoid curdling of the milk products

When pudding is done place in a bowl, top with apples, sprinkle cinnamon, and add a cinnamon stick for garnish.
