Not nearly enough water
February 18, 2023
I made it but it kept on running out of liquid. I would recommend at least a cup and a half to 2 cups of water. Half an onion would be fine. Just make sure you dice it up small. Green onions could also work on this.

Merchant Response:Thank you for your comments
  • I found something else to do with El Pato.
  • Poor instructions

Just like uptown!

I just made this and my family loved it because it was just like the rice we get at our favorite Mexican restaurant. I fried the rice and about a half cup of minced onion in 2 tablespoons oil, then added half the can (4oz) of the hot El Pato sauce and 1 and 1/2 cups water ( I didn't have any plain tomato sauce.) Delicious!

How much onion?

In the directions you refer to onion, but onion is not listed as part of the ingredients. Please let us know the recommended amount of onion and should it be diced, or chopped? Thank You!
