We eat a lot of rice at our house and I always cook it in the pressure cooker. It’s super easy and cooks perfectly every time.
Since Cinco de Mayo is right around the corner, today I’m sharing my quick and easy Spanish Rice recipe. The rice only takes four minutes to cook in the pressure cooker, so it’s the great side dish for almost anything you’re cooking this year for Cinco de Mayo.
Quick and Easy Spanish Rice
- 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
- 1/4 cup onion, diced
- 1 cup long grain white rice
- 1 1/4 cup chicken broth
- 1/2 cup mild salsa
Select Sauté and add oil to cooking pot. When hot, add the onions. Cook, stirring occasionally until onion is tender, about 3 to 5 minutes.
Stir in rice and cook, stirring frequently, until rice becomes opaque, about 1 to 2 minutes. Add broth and salsa. Cover and lock lid in place. Select High Pressure and set timer for 4 minutes. When beep sounds wait 5 minutes and then use a Quick Pressure Release to release pressure.
When valve drops carefully remove lid, tilting away from you to allow steam to disperse.
Fluff rice with a fork and serve immediately.
