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.
Making Quick and Easy Spanish Rice in an Instant Pot
- 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.
