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

I'd be willing to bet that they use El Pato salsa in their sauce. It's in a yellow can and looks like it should be disgusting, but it's awesome and has a flavor in it that can't be found anywhere else.

Now if someone wants to tell me what's in El Pato, I'd really appreciate it.

El Pato Salsa - What am I missing?

Friends,

I am at wit's end. There is a spice in El Pato salsa that I can not figure out for love or money. Here's the recipe so far, but I am definitely missing a spice:

8 oz tomato sauce
1/4 tsp garlic salt
1/8 tsp onion salt
1/2 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp powdered chile de arbol
1/2 tsp paprika
1/16 tsp ground clove and allspice
1/4 tsp vinegar (white)
salt to taste

Here is a link to the product page, for those who don't know what I'm talking about. It's the yellow can.

Here is a partial list of some of the spices I've tried:

Achiote
Saflower
Yellow Mustard seed
Black Mustard seed
Safflower
MSG

Has anyone had El Pato? Do you know the flavor I am speaking about? I require assistance, please.

Thank you in advance!
