I’ve seen so many arroz con leche recipes, and while they all look and probably taste fantastic, I wanted a little something different for the Mexican cookbook. The recipes I found also seemed like they took too long. Cook the rice, then add the milk, re-cook, use PIP, etc. It seemed like too much trouble. This Arroz Pina Colada is a one-step recipe: cook the rice, add the milks, you’re done. Because you know, I’m either lazy or efficient, I’m never sure which.
Arroz Pina Colada | One Step Pressure Cooker Recipe
I decided to make arroz con leche–but with adding coconut and pineapple. I also decided to go the Instant Pot route when it comes to cooking because, as you probably have already noticed, I’m a huge fan of simplifying recipes as much as possible. The Instant Pot really makes this recipe and absolute breeze to make. It’s quick, simple, and incredibly crave worthy.
