Instead of concentrating on the ingredients you think the red chile has, first try concentrating on the ingredients it doesn't have...then work from there. Make sense?

King Taco: what's in that sauce?!!?! [moved from Los Angeles board]

There's a King Taco on Third Street, between Ford and Mcbride in East Los Angeles. I lived off of Mcbride years ago, and lived off KT's food. I don't know if this info helps, but if you purchase a couple of styrofoam cups full of red chile, and take it home and refrigerate like that, it will be fine for some time. The red chile will thicken up after awhile. All you have to do is add water to "reconstitute" it. However, if you bottle it, I notice a couple of things. First the chile does not keep well bottled. After it's been bottled for a couple days, when you twist the cap off the bottle to open it, you'll hear a puff of gas escaping from the bottle, which is kinda weird. Also, after it's been bottled for a couple of weeks, you'll see that the chile (and its ingredients) will separate inside the bottle. Hint: Bottle it and let it sit until the chile separates...maybe then you might be able to find the missing ingredients. Lastly for what it's worth, my mom thinks it has vinegar and cumin.
