    Actually arroz con leche is not a Mexican dessert, it´s from Spain, and the original recipe does not have raisins! - 8/8/08

    We make something similiar to this. We boil the rice with the cinnamon stick and lemon peel. We then take it out before serving. We put it in a mold and sprinkle cinnamon on top and chill it. It is considered a Cuban dessert. I also add a little vanilla extract. Very nummy. - 1/21/08
