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

its very similar to the King taco sauce. The base is chiles de arbol, chipotles, Yellow onion, pumpkin seeds, and huage seeds. that gets you 80% of the next 20% is what makes the sauce amazing and I wish i knew the winning combination but the truth is that everything i try falls a bit short. my last try lacked a zesty tangy taste the the original has, and was a bit hotter. I made this for thanksgiving ill see what the rest of my family thinks. My first 2 victims said that it was insane on the heat scale...but they are green sauce people... so they cant be trusted.

on OCT 8th Sabelotodo posted his last list, its very near what the sauce is. it was missing a bit of heat, color and zestfulness. I gave it a try by adding lemon zest coriander seeds, it helped with the zest. and i added pico de gallo powder.( it helped with the color and heat. I added a few table spoons of the powder and it made it red and very hot, will have to play with the amounts. i feel it got about 90% of the taste and 125% of the heat!

I just did another batch ... I did sabelotidos last post but added lemon zest and coriander seeds. At the end it was very close. It has a bit orange and not as tangy. So I added a few table spoons of poco de gallo chilli powder. I think that might be what helps the spice level and makes it red. I may have over done it as the spice level is very high ( more than king tacos) not sure it you guys want to try it with maybe just one table spoon of the stuff.

So Ive given this a shot more than once and I feel its just off, What? i wish i could tell. the color is a bit off the spice level is not as hot and its missing a tanggy element. Sabelotodo its a good salsa but just not the same.

I think this will help..... a spot in Baldwin Park called Rambos Tacos has a sauce that is dead on, but its a bit thicker and may be able to give us more hints on whats in the sauce. maybe you guys can give it a try and see if it can help

i gave it a shot redmeat.... i think its 85%. the base is right. but its not as red and not as tangy. Do you think it has a hint of sugar? maybe lime?
