Expert Tips

Serve warm with pieces of peanut brittle crunched up on top.

This delicious arroz con leche recipe has been in my family for as long as I can remember. My grandmother always added a sweet swirl of cajeta to her arroz con leche and topped it with pieces of peanut brittle. As a child I named it "Special Surprise", and use to ask for it frequently. She knew exactly what I was asking for and would dash to the kitchen to make my Special Surprise. I now make this Cajeta Arroz con Leche for my son, and love to see his eyes light up as I serve him. I imagine that's how my grandmother used to feel when she saw my eyes widen with the same happy glow.

Directions

  • 1 Add cinnamon sticks, vanilla, condensed milk, cajeta, milk, and raisins into a slow cooker and set on low. Mix and allow warming for 30 minutes.
  • 2 Then add in cooked rice. Mix it well and continue to warm on low for an additional 2 hours. Stir every 30 minutes or so.
