Amelia Ceja revisits her youth in Mexico by preparing one of her favorite breakfast dishes taught to her by her maternal grandmother, Mamá Chepa. ¡Salud! Arroz con Leche -- Rice with Milk From Amelia Ceja's Kitchen (serves 6 to 8) I love arroz con leche for breakfast or as dessert after a meal. This is the easiest recipe prepared by my maternal grandmother Mamá Chepa while I was growing up in a small village in Mexico.
  Long grain white rice 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Water 2 Cup (32 tbs)
  Milk 3 Cup (48 tbs)
  Sugar 1⁄3 Cup (5.33 tbs)
  Cinnamon stick 1

Place the water, rice and the cinnamon stick in a medium size pot and bring to a boil -- reduce heat, cover and simmer for 20 minutes or until all the liquid has been absorbed.

Add the milk and sugar and bring gently to a boil again -- reduce heat, simmer uncovered and stir continually until creamy about 15 minutes. Can be served hot or cold for breakfast or dessert -- it's yummy! This video is a creation of cejavineyards.You can visit cejavineyards for complete recipes, and more videos.
