Total time
Serves: 8 servings
  • 1½ c. long-grain rice
  • 3 T. oil
  • 2 T. finely chopped onions
  • 1 clove minced garlic
  • 1 8 oz. can tomato sauce
  • 2 tsp. chicken bouillon
  • pinch ground black pepper
  • 4 c. chicken broth
  • 2 c. grated cheddar cheese, you can use less but the more the better ;)
  1. I used my instapot to make this rice but it's easy to make on the stove top too. I'll give you directions for either method.
  2. InstaPot Method:
  3. Using the saute setting stir fry rice in oil until golden brown.
  4. Add the remaining ingredients except cheese.
  5. Set InstaPot to the "Rice" setting. I usually adjust the time down to 10 minutes. Make sure pressure valve is closed and lid is on tight.
  6. After the timer beeps quick release the pressure.
  7. Stir in cheese.
  8. Serve immediately.
  9. Stove Top Method
  10. In a 3 quart pan stir fry rice in oil over medium heat until golden brown.
  11. Add remaining ingredients, except cheese.
  12. Bring to a boil then simmer with the lid on until rice is cooked. See rice package directions.
  13. Add grated cheese and stir.
  14. Serve immediately.
