"Sweet Rice" or Arroz con Leche

Thank you Vita for sharing this easy and delicious recipe!

6 cups water

1 cup long-grain white rice

One 4-inch cinnamon stick

One 12-ounce can evaporated milk

One 14-ounce can condensed milk

3/4 cup golden raisins (optional)

Ground cinnamon, for dusting

Put the water, rice, and cinnamon stick in a medium-size heavy saucepan set over medium-high heat. Bring to a boil, uncovered, and cook until the rice is tender, about 18 minutes. There should be a little water left, but just covering rice. Discard the cinnamon and stir in the evaporated and condensed milk. Continue cooking over medium-high heat until the mixture comes to a boil. Reduce the heat to low and cook, uncovered, stirring constantly, until the mixture is thick, about 20 minutes. Add the raisins (if desired), and stir well. Transfer the pudding to a serving bowl. Dust the top of the pudding with ground cinnamon and serve
