This was a hit with my husband and 15 year old son (who requested it). I usually make my own "quick" version with instant rice but decided to try your recipe with the uncooked rice instead. Glad I did! It takes a lot longer and a whole lot more stirring but well worth it. I doubled the recipe but only did 14 oz (1 can) of sweetened condensed milk instead of 16 oz. I'm glad I did because it was pretty sweet still. I also replaced the water with 2% milk and added vanilla extract. Delicious!!!

As easy as homemade yummy comfort food gets! Although it’s way too sweet with 1 cup of sweetened condensed milk- I would do half that amount next time and some whole milk. I diluted it with whole milk this first time and it seemed to work (but I would still cut the sweetened condensed milk in half)! I found myself needing to stir it a lot- so I had to stand by the stove the whole time it cooked,, but that didn’t bother me. :) I can’t wait to make it again adjusting the recipe! I will definitely add this to my recipe box!

This was ok. I love Ina Garten's recipe for rice pudding much better. It's always my go to recipe.

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.

I made this recipe but doubled the ingredients to use the whole can of condensed milk. It is a bit sweet for me, but it was very easy and good. I think I would add more rice and raisins and use some whole milk next time so it isn't so sweet. But I would definately make it again.
