Instant Pot Yellow Rice | Food Under Pressure
Packaged Yellow Rice [Instant Pot Pressure Cooker]
Yellow Rice is the best.
Especially when it comes to serving any kind of tacos, enchiladas, nachos, burritos, etc – ya know, tex-mex food.
I love tex-mex, and I love yellow rice.
What I don’t love is cooking rice – any kid of rice. I suck at cooking rice! I admit this in my recipe blog on Jasmine Rice, too. #stayhumble
No matter what I do, my rice is either soggy, mushy, over cooked, under cooked… something other than good. Edible, perhaps, but not good.
Because the yellow rice is packaged, I wasn’t sure how it would work in the Instant Pot. I am happy to report, it works AMAZING! Seriously guys, it comes out PERFECT. Don’t believe me, just try it.
Have I told you how much I LOVE my Instant Pot?
I am cooking for 3, hubby, me and 7 year old step daughter (who isn’t always agreeable to eating rice). So its pretty much hubby and my currently pregnant self (yay – due March 2017).
For that reason, I make the smallest package of yellow rice I can find at the store (5 ounces), and that is what this recipe is based on. The rice in the package is just under 1 cup, but I used 1 cup water and it turned out perfect! If you want to make a bigger package, I’d say aim to use equal parts rice to liquid. The cook time should not change.
