Down. Before placing the lid on your instant pot, press down the rice so that none is above the liquid. This stops any of the rice from going hard once cooked.
Quantities. Your 2 cups/480ml of brown rice will make a good portion. You can leave your instant pot inner pot in the fridge and consume over the next 3 days or freeze any extra for later.
Seasoning. You can also add in extra seasoning and have it as spicy as you want. I also recommend for more spice to add in sliced jalapenos at the same time as your peppers.
