Instant Pot Mexican Rice

This is my go to Mexican rice recipe for the Instant Pot. I love Mexican rice. It’s a great way to add flavour to your rice, along with low fat. low calories and of course lots of minerals and vitamins. 

I love Spanish rice or Mexican rice and it’s a great source of Vitamin C, Vitamin B and Folate. 

Although this recipe uses basmati rice, you can switch this for long grain rice if that’s what you have in stock. Basmati rice won’t be quite as fluffy but it will still taste amazing. We have tried this recipe in the Instant pot with both types of rice.
