Mexican Style Rice (Instant Pot) is my recipe of the day with  the blogging  group Multicooker Monday. We join  up  monthly to post new and delicious recipes using small appliances. Such as the Instant Pot and Slow Cooker.

I decided to post my recipe for making Mexican style rice in the Instant Pot. We like to have this on taco nights sometimes, and I make it a variety of ways depending on my mood. But the pressure cooker makes it dead easy.

Besides the mild  spiciness from the salsa,  the vegetables in this are yum.  I always did enjoy rice that had olives. But then again, I am sort of an olive freak.

Yet you can leave those out or improvise to  cover what you have on hand. Or prefer. I like to change up things from one time to another. It is very typical.

This type of rice goes great with tacos,  enchiladas, burritos, fajitas or many of the Tex-Mex foods we love. If I had another veg,  it would probably be sauteed zucchini,  or maybe a tossed salad with avocado dressing.

In some cases, you can even use this rice as an additional burrito filling for Mission burritos. It’s a great way to fill those out and use less meat at the same time.

  1. Great recipes for Mexican style rices. I’ve used Potsie’s recipe for years and now I have some more choices. I’ll use my rice cooker since I don’t have a instant pot. Thanks Sue
