COMBINE water and rice in large saucepan. Let stand at room temperature for 2 hours.

ADD evaporated milk, cinnamon stick, lime peel and salt to rice mixture; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low. Stir in sugar and raisins. Continue cooking for 40 to 45 minutes, stirring occasionally until rice is tender and mixture is smooth. (Additional water may be needed if rice is not of desired texture.) Discard cinnamon stick and lime peel. Spoon into dessert cups. Cover; refrigerate for at least 2 hours. Sprinkle with ground cinnamon and lime zest before serving.

* NOTE: Lemon peel and zest could be substituted for lime.

I grew up eating rice pudding when I was young. Now I pass on the same Spanish traditions to my kids.


The lime zest gives this rice pudding just the extra little zest to keep it from being just another rice pudding recipe. Very good!


This recipe was very easy to make and very delicious especially for my family who loves rice pudding. My family ask me for this recipe they were very happy and enjoy every minute of it they can't wait to pass it along to their family.


This recipe is very good and easy, my family loves it. I like to use condensed milk instead of sugar and a little bit of coconut milk and it gives the recipe a great Caribbean flavor.


This is a delicious recipe.


Easy, creamy, and DELICIOUS!! Agreat snack or elegant dessert. Make and enjoy some today!!
