Recently I was talking to my niece Kara about how she uses her Instant Pot, and she told me she makes rice in the Instant Pot at least once a week! And that’s when I decided I should remind you about this delicious-sounding Instant Pot Cafe Rio Cilantro Lime Rice from 365 Days of Slow Cooking, so I’m featuring it for Friday Favorites today!
This Cafe Rio Cilantro Lime Rice sounds like a great side dish for a party or just a quiet Mexican dinner at home. It cooks up super fast in the Instant Pot and turns out perfect every time! Cafe Rio Cilantro Lime Rice takes a total of just 18 minutes in the Instant Pot (8 minutes cooking time) and that’s 18 hands-off minutes you have for other tasks. You could be chopping lettuce, slicing avocados, or a million other things while the rice cooks.
