A delicious twist on the beloved rice pudding.



  • 1 cup of water
  • 2 cinnamon sticks
  • 1 cup Minute® White Rice
  • 4 cups 2% milk
  • 1 can (380 grams or 13.4 oz.) of Dulce de Leche (available in Latino markets or the International aisle)
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • salt


  1. Cook the rice following the instructions on the box, use a cinnamon stick in the cooking water and a pinch of salt.
  2. In a saucepan place the milk and Dulce de Leche and heat over medium-high heat, stirring to dissolve the Dulce de Leche.
  3. Add the cooked rice and continue to cook over medium-low heat for 20-30 minutes, stirring frequently.
  4. Be careful, when the milk reaches the boiling state it produces a lot of foam. Reduce the heat to a simmer.
  5. Wait until you reach the desired thickness. In my case, it took 24 minutes. Add the butter and turn off the heat.
  6. Remember: it will thicken when cold!
  7. Serve cold or warm with chocolate sprinkles, raisins or just by itself.
