This Mexican-style rice pudding is super easy to make and is so very good to eat. We especially enjoy the taste of the cinnamon and the sweetness of the raisins. To enhance the cinnamon taste I have started adding powdered cinnamon to each stage of the preparation.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Member's Choice! Rice pudding is an old-fashioned dish that's pure comfort food. This rice pudding recipe is sweet and creamy thanks to the condensed milk. It adds just enough sweetness and is the perfect combination with the cinnamon. The starchy rice and milk thicken up perfectly. IF someone says they don't like rice pudding, serve them a bowl of this. It will convert them to a fan.
