Today I’m taking a little trip back home in partnership with @LotusFoods. I’m sharing my recipe of Arroz con Leche made with Lotus Foods’ Organic White Quick Cook Rice with you to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month. Arroz con Leche is one of Mexico’s most popular desserts and with good reason; it’s rich, sweet, and so comforting. I treasure the memories of my Abuelita in the kitchen making Arroz con Leche for our big family gatherings. This Arroz con Leche couldn’t be more delicious or easier to make

What you need to make Arroz con Leche

Lemon peel

Lotus Foods Organic White Quick Cook Rice. This rice cooks in only ten minutes! Less than half the time than regular rice

Helpful tips and tricks

The rice will thicken as it cooks. If you think the rice has too much milk in it and it’s not creamy enough just let it cool. It will get a lot creamier and more like a pudding consistency.

Arroz con Leche is delicious when it’s cold but to me, it’s better when it’s warm. You can warm it up in a saucepan on medium low heat or in the microwave if it’s a small portion. Add a splash of warm milk if needed.


Hello, my name is Marisol Chancellor. I was born and raised in Monterrey Mexico. I’ve been living in Texas for 12 years and even when I love barbeque, fruit cobblers and sweet tea, there’s something that has the power of transporting me right back to my mom’s kitchen and gives me a little piece of home, cooking. I grew up in the kitchen and for me, memories are always linked to food, and behind the food, well, there’s always a story that comes along. So, please let me share with you my love for cooking and while we are at it, let’s share some memories, because let’s be honest, we are also hungry for nostalgia.
