Expert Tips

Omit sugar and sweeten with condensed milk to taste for a creamier version of arroz con leche.

There are so many ways to prepare arroz con leche. This time, I'm sharing with you a seasonal recipe I like to prepare as a Thanksgiving dessert: pumpkin arroz con leche. Since I usually have a little bit of pumpkin puree leftover from preparing pies, flan and soufflés, I like to add it to my arroz con leche as well and add this recipe to my repertoire of pumpkin recipes to serve during the holidays.

Directions

  • 1 In a heavy saucepan, combine milk, salt, nutmeg, cloves and cinnamon over medium heat. Bring to a slow simmer.
  • 2 Add rice and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and cover. Let simmer, stirring occasionally until rice is tender; approximately 20 minutes.
  • 3 Uncover and fold in pumpkin puree, sugar and vanilla until completely combined. Cook for 5 more minutes. Cover and remove from heat. Discard cinnamon sticks and cloves. Let cool.
  • 4 To serve, garnish with orange zest and pepitas.
