Instant Pot Spanish Rice
Once you try this Instant Pot Spanish Rice, you will never make it on the stove again!
chopped yellow onion
long grain rice
(or extra long)
fresh garlic, minced
chili powder (optional)
Plug in your Instant Pot and push the Saute button. Once the pan is hot, add the oil. Swirl it around the bottom of the liner and add the diced onions.
Saute the onions, stirring frequently, until softened, about 4 minutes.
Add the rice and saute until they begin to turn a golden color, about 2 minutes. Continue stirring to make sure they do not burn. Add the garlic, stir and cook for one minute.
Add the chicken stock, crushed tomatoes, cumin, and chili powder. Stir together, scraping the bottom to make sure nothing is sticking. Press the Cancel button.
Place the lid on your Instant Pot and twist to lock. Check to make sure the “knob” is in the Sealing position. Press the Manual button and adjust the time to 8 minutes.
When the Instant Pot beeps, allow the pressure to release naturally for 5 minutes. Carefully twist the knob to release the remaining pressure and remove the lid.
Stir/fluff the rice. Stir in the cilantro, season with salt and pepper if needed, and serve with your favorite main dish
