Instant Pot Mexican Rice

FullSizeRender (24)

 

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.
