I could eat rice with every meal, literally! I love it! And making it in the Instant pot is so simple, I usually make rice 2-3 times per week. My kiddos love this “red rice” as they call it, and I think it tastes just like the rice you’d find at an authentic Mexican restaurant.
Grab your ingredients and seasonings.
Turn the Instant Pot to Saute mode and add 2 Tbsp of butter or oil. Allow it to heat up before adding the chopped onions and garlic.
Add the rice and saute for another 2-3 minutes.
Add the rest of the ingredients.
Cook on HIGH Pressure for 5 minutes.
When the timer is up, allow the ressure to release naturally for 10 minutes before quickly releasing the pressure. Stir your rice and enjoy! 🙂
