Have a sweet tooth? This homemade arroz con leche is here to help!
Thank you HEB for sponsoring today’s post! This recipe is brought to you in partnership with HEB and their #TexFestSweepstakes going on now
Hey yall! I am super excited to be partnering up with HEB again this year! HEB is our big grocery store down here in Texas. My first real job was at HEB as a bagger/carry-out and I loved it.
When we lived in Michigan one of the things I missed most was HEB. I literally grew up going there and they have some of the best products. From the pre-seasoned fajitas to the Texas shaped corn chips to chupacabra rub– I was one lonely Texas girl up in the great white north.
I missed the craziest things while we lived in Michigan. Homemade tortillas smothered in butter. Quesadillas with extra grilled onions. Big fat avocados. Homemade arroz con leche. All things comfort food that I grew up enjoying.
Arroz con leche means rice with milk. And that’s essentially what it is – rice pudding drenched in sweetened and condensed milk. It’s absolutely delicious.
In honor of Texas Independence Day (which is March 2nd), HEB has some tasty Texas picks in their stores. All of which are sourced locally here in Texas. We tried the Vela farms Sweet Tea jelly for breakfast one morning. SO good! And it’s made grown and made an hour away from us in Victoria. How cool is that?? You can check out all the Primo Picks here!
I made this arroz con leche to celebrate and I am super excited to share it with yall today. It’s so easy to whip up and can be eaten as a dessert or a quick breakfast. (My kids had it as both!)
