931AF74D-0DE6-4468-9017-4A833B64DE43Mmm…one of my hubby’s favorite things I make from his grandmother’s “recipes”. I say “recipes” because she cooks like me, and there really isn’t ever a measured one just a handful of this and a sprinkle or that, 🤷🏼‍♀️but I’ve sorta made some out of watching her, so I can try and make most of my hubby’s New Mexico favorites here in So Cal. 😉 His Family has so much Spanish history and influence, because they were originally from Spain, migrated to some parts of Mexico and then eventually (in around the 1600’s, if I’m remembering correctly) into what is now considered New Mexico. So this #sweetrice as his family calls it, is a bit different than a traditional #arrozconleche a little less sweet, and a little runnier too. I start with about 5-6 cups of water to 2 cups of #long #grain white rice, add in about a tsp of #vanilla, about 1-1/2 cups of sugar and a can of #evaporated #milk. Bring to a boil and then simmer for about 25 min – until the rice is still just slightly undercooked. It needs to be a little #souplike so it may need more water added at the end too. Then, whip up some #egg #whites (I used 3 here) until some peaks form (pic shown), add a few Tbsp or so of #sugar, whisk a little more to combine and then place it on top the rice. Sprinkle some #cinnamon and just a tad of #nutmeg and you’re done! 😋😋😋 #nietostyle #sweetrice #gramscooking #nm #newmexico #notmexico
