Spanish Rice- Mexican Pressure Cooker Recipe

In America, the basic rice used in Mexican cuisine is referred to as "Spanish Rice" - which confuses Spaniards because they have never heard of it.  My guess: the rice got it's name when someone translated the recipe from the original in Spanish... and not knowing what to call it, they titled it after the language in which it was written.

Whatever the origins of its nomenclature, this recipe belongs to the "pilaf" family where both Italian Risotto and Spanish Paella reside - and can be equally pressure cooked into quick perfection.
