This is a favorite when I have company. Many say it's the best Mexican rice they've ever had. As a vegetarian I'm always testing products so that I get the same full taste. I recommend Imagine No-Chicken Broth but you can use real chicken broth if you prefer. Also, El Pato sauce is found in the Latin / Hispanic section of your grocery store. It's a small yellow can with a duck on it.
