    I grew up eating rice pudding when I was young. Now I pass on the same Spanish traditions to my kids.

    The lime zest gives this rice pudding just the extra little zest to keep it from being just another rice pudding recipe. Very good!

    Delicious

    JESSICA VIGIL from Oceanside, CA

    This recipe is very good and easy, my family loves it. I like to use condensed milk instead of sugar and a little bit of coconut milk and it gives the recipe a great Caribbean flavor.
