One of the most popular sweet desserts we have in our Mexican culture is the “Arroz con leche”, which, as with the other candies or desserts I mentioned above, is all natural, easy to make and very delicious.

Let me start off by saying that this is not the old-fashioned way of making Rice Pudding. This, of course, will depend on your age, since condensed milk has been around in México since before the 50’s. I also have to say that this is the way I remember it being cooked, and it is the easy way.

My mom would boil rice with water and then add the condensed milk, without even thinking twice about the other ways of making it. It could be that having eight children didn’t give her much time for long cooking processes. So when somebody wrote me asking for the recipe, I felt a little embarrassed to let them know that I use a shortcut with this easier method and not the old-fashioned way that uses just plain whole milk and sugar with a long-simmering process until it’s all reduced to a creamy texture. The bright side of using this method is that your rice pudding will be ready in half the time.

Below is a picture of some of the candied fruit one can find here in the States at the Latin Market. I encourage you to try them if you have the chance.
