it is Cuban rice pudding

this is not just a Cuban rice pudding like the person before said. This is actually a Latin American dessert that goes all the way back to Spain. Many Latin American countries have their own variations to the recipe, but all of them include rice, sugar, and milk. According to an article I read the moors were possibly the first to introduce this dish to Spain. Arroz con leche was actually made out of convenience to people back in the time before refrigeration. They would use left over rice, so they wouldn't have to waste it.
