Instant Pot Spanish Rice
Spanish rice that tastes just like it was from a Mexican restaurant! You will never use a Spanish Rice spice packet again after making this dish. Serve with refried beans or use as the base of a burrito bowl!

- 1/4 cup diced onion
- 2 cloves garlic minced
- 1 small jalapeno diced and seeds/ribs removed

Add olive oil to the Instant Pot and turn on SAUTE. Keep the lid off of the Instant Pot.
Once hot, add the onion and stir often. Cook about 2 minutes or until soft. Add the minced garlic, jalapeno and spices. Stir constantly for 30 seconds.
Push the OFF button.
Add the remaining ingredients.
Put the lid on the instant pot. Turn on for 25 minutes on High Pressure for brown rice. Or use the RICE setting for white rice.
Once done, let the pressure release on its own and do not vent.
Stir and eat! We topped our rice with refried beans!
