~ Sweet Cinnamon Mexican Rice ~

Cassie *


Not too sweet, and oh so creamy. My family rates this rice right up there with my other rice recipes. It's so easy to make, with just 4 ingredients. The hardest part of the recipe is the waiting...

A great ending to any Mexican dish it's great anytime for that matter.
