I put this together in 20 minutes and it tasted just like the store bought version. I'm sure it had less the calories but the flavor was the same (or better)! This is quick and tasty! I used penne pasta but any swirls or shells would work just as well.
Everyone I know loves my mom's rice. It's full of flavor and can be sniffed a mile away. She always has to make a double batch for any get together because it goes FAST! I like to eat this with beans, or with lots of lemon. I sometimes also mix in some chicken and make it a single dish meal!
This is the real candy you can find at the flea market or your grandma's house! Hard on the outside, sweet and juicy on the inside. I used about half of the sugar the recipe calls for and it was sweet enough--you can taste the freshness of the fruit in every bite! You may find the hydrated lime (or calcium hydroxide, or slaked lime) in specialty grocery stores (Mexican product is called Cal) or garden center.
