Instant Pot Green Chili Rice is so easy to make. It is a great side dish for so many meals.
Mexican type of food is one of my family’s favorite meals. It is usually quick and easy to make and my kids all enjoy it. Even the picky eater of the family enjoys Mexican or Tex Mex type of meals.
One of the other things I love about Mexican type food is that it is easy to do meatless. Even in my family of meat lovers, I can get by with an occasional meatless Mexican food dinner.
Mexican food is also a way to change up your basic beans and rice.
Beans and rice are often thought of as money saving foods. There is a reason people say a rice and beans budget. But rice and beans don’t have to be boring. You can easily change up rice and beans and give them all kinds of flavor.
That is the good thing about rice and beans. They are plain foods on their own, but you can add all kinds of things to them to give them all kinds of flavor.
This recipe for green chili rice is an example of how I changed up a simple dish. We love basic rice and eat it often.
I also love to make Mexican Rice, Green Chili Rice, Asian Rice, and Cheesy Baked Rice. I wanted to adapt a few of my basic rice recipes for the Instant Pot because I knew it would help make dinner easy on busy days.
This Instant Pot Green Chili Rice is one of the recipes I came up with for an easy side dish. It is full of flavor and is great on it’s own. It also works served with beans and chips for a simple lunch or dinner. Or you can serve it as a side dish to just about any Mexican meal.
