  1. Add rice, chicken broth, salt, and butter to the pressure cooker pot and stir.  Secure the lid and turn pressure release knob to a sealed position. Cook at high pressure for 3 minutes.
  2. While the rice is cooking, place spinach leaves, green onions, jalapeño, cilantro, and lime juice in the bowl of a food processor and pulse until mixture is finely minced, almost like a paste.  Could also use a blender, but you may need to scrape it down a few times.
  3. When cooking is complete, use a natural release for 10 minutes and then release any remaining pressure.
  4. Fluff the rice with a fork.  Add green mixture and gently stir to combine.  Serve immediately.
