My ex wife didn't leave me with her Mexican rice recipe and I never paid attention to how she made it. All i know is she use a small can of El Pato tomato sauce and some onion, don't think she did much else. My plan was to saute the onion in some oil, then add the rice for a few minutes, then the elpato sauce and some water. Sound about right? Also have trouble with how much rice and water to use with an 8 oz can of El Pato.
