Enjoy an exquisitely sweet treat any time of day with this rich, creamy, and deliciously simple Cajeta Rice Pudding.
In heavy-bottom saucepan, cook rice according to package directions.
Meanwhile, in separate saucepan, combine milk, sweetened condensed milk and 1/2 cup of the cajeta. Bring to boil over medium-high heat; stir into the just-cooked rice. Cook rice mixture over medium-low heat, uncovered, stirring frequently with wooden spoon and scraping bottom to prevent sticking, for 8 to 10 minutes or until thick and creamy.
Stir in cinnamon and vanilla. Spoon pudding into serving bowls. Let cool completely; refrigerate until chilled.
Garnish rice pudding with drizzle of remaining cajeta, pinch of cinnamon, pecans and sea salt.
If desired, garnish the puddings with fresh fruit, such as diced pineapple, mango, or berries.
Rice pudding can also be served warm if desired.
