Sweet and simple, this creamy dessert is real comfort food in any language. You’ll love the warm raisin and cinnamon flavors. It’s great served cold, too. —Marina Castle, North Hollywood, California

"I have never had this before and I have only heard of it from Dora the Explorer! My 5 year old and I tried it tonight, THIS WAS AWESOME! This is a definite make again recipe! It is a little sweet so I couldn't eat too much but top notch! I will be bringing it to my "Sister Tuesday" get together for dessert since we are having tacos! Thank you for such a wonderful recipe!"

"This was really good - I used brown rice, which tasted great warm, but when I refrigerated it, the rice hardened up. I'd stick with the plain white rice next time. Seasoning is perfect."
