Instant Pot Mexican Red Rice

There’s nothing like a great Mexican Red Rice on your plate when you’re having Taco Tuesday or any other Mexican or Southwestern dinner. There’s a reason so many of us at home either skip it altogether or turn to a mix – after all, why put effort into a dish that even at restaurants is sometimes lackluster and gets picked at or pushed aside. This Instant Pot Mexican Red Rice is going to rock your world – or at least get you some fab Mexican Red Rice on the table!

Roasted Mushroom Barley Risotto

Roasted Mushroom Barley Risotto

Roasted Mushroom Barley Risotto is one of those cozy, fall dishes that takes very little effort but has a huge payoff in flavor. And even though this dish and dishes like this are typically called “risotto” it’s made with barley rather than rice. Call me Miss Obvious, lol! 🙂

I don’t know if any of you guys watch Diners Drive-Ins & Dives but I swear it’s becoming an issue at my house. I might need a support group! That’s where I got the idea of Bahn Mi Street Tacos. They’re def a play on American Southern and Mexican with just a touch of Asian tossed in the mix. And just when you might think you’re bored of street tacos…this one is surprising in over the top flavor. A little crazy, even, but it just works!

If you’re a follower, you gotta know I love my Instant Pot! But I love it for the things it does well and for me it’s just a tool (nope, it hasn’t replaced either Chance or Homer’s spot on my bed) but I’m not one to compromise on any recipe just to use it. While I will probably still roast chicken every now and then in the oven, I’m really impressed with this Instant Pot Roasted Chicken!
