Rice Pudding – Pudin de Arroz

My mother made this recipe. This is the richest, most wonderful rice pudding. My daughter couldn’t get enough of it and begged her to make it every time she came to visit. You can use left over rice or make a new batch just for this. It takes a little stirring but, it is very worth it.
