    Hi Angelica! 😉 I've had rice pudding but not the way you made it. I'm thinking I would like Your version of Much better, so I will definitely be making! We've already had a few cool nights here, so it won't be long (not that I'm thrilled by any means with seasons changes). It just get too darn Cold here in Chicago 🤨. But on thee other hand, it sure is a Beautiful City! Enough about that.

  5. Yummo. Ilike how you infused your water with your spices. I need to try this. I have never used clove in sweet rice, just cinnamon and vanilla.

  16. 사랑Koya says:

    Oh yes arroz con leche is the best!❤

  17. Quick question I'm curious is there a difference between condensed milk and evaporated milk and when one or the other should be used?

  18. Thank you soooo much!! Can not wait to try this recipe!! No disrespect, but that batch you made wouldn't even be enough for my FIRST serving! Lol

  19. My husband makes this sometimes and i love it!! Fills you up as well!

  22. Cant wait to try this! Memories of when my grandmother would make this and we would eat it all day. It tastes even better cold.

  23. maria kilman says:

    I grew up eating this. My mom would always use condensed carnation milk. So good. Thank you.

  24. This was my breakfast, lunch & dinner as a child (8 months – 2yrs), my mom says she had to make a big pot of it cause I refused to eat any other foods 😊 and, during both my pregnancies, couldn't hold anything else down. I still serve me a cup of it when visiting my momma 😉

  25. I was suppose to buy rice pudding today and I forgot it😬

  26. Your seriously my fav cook on YouTube !!

  27. D Hoosier says:

    Looks & sounds delicious! This reminds me of my mom cooking rice with sugar & milk, on very cold, snowy days. I'll have to try this. Thank you. Have a beautiful weekend.

  28. Hello Anjelica! Hope you are well. It is so strange that we cook the same things around the same time. I made “rice pudding “ a couple of days ago for my Mama before she has her infusion for RA/Lupus. My Abuelita made this recipe a little different, so consequently I do as well. I do like your method. The only differences between our recipes are that I cook my rice first then add the canned milk and sugar and vanilla extract and simmer it down. Also we add raisins and add ground cinnamon before eating it, also in a cup or a little bowl. I enjoy your videos very much. It’s fun to see foods from our culture shared. Sooo… what about The Chile Colorado? 😏😋. I know there are other videos out there In Utube land, however, I would much prefer yours. THANK YOU 😇

  29. Ohits Yuwiss says:

    My mom would use condensed milk. How would I add it if I wanted to try it? Just curious. Thanks for this great video ❤️

    Looks so yummy as always! For a vegan option do you recommend rice, soy or almond milk for this? 🙂 Thank-you for all that you do.

  32. Ferrari Moss says:

    How long does it last in fridge?

  33. This is one of my all time favorites!!

  34. Martha Lugo says:

    I put in condensed milk and 2% milk as well along with evaporated milk. I have huge family gatherings and one time I made 4 lbs. of rice! yikes!

  35. Teresa Ronga says:

    Hi Gochujang Mama!
    Great recipe! Looks delicious! By the way,
    did you see Gochujang is officially a word in Webster's dictionary?

  36. lisa ibarra says:

    I have a special request for this rainy weather here… could you make some sort of semi-spicy korean soup? Like Budae Jjigae? I hope I spelled that correctly…
