Super-Rica Especial marinade recipe/ingredients

Update: The closest I've come to Super-Rica marinade is a Guajillo-based marinade (with some achiote added). There is still a "zing" missing that Super-Rica has, but at least I'm headed in the right direction. Thanks for all the suggestions.

Thanks. I've made marinades with anchos and guajillos but not just guajillos.

Thanks for those. I've made marinades with anchos and guajillos but haven't thrown in achiote. Maybe that will get me closer.

La Super Rica Style, on La Brea

Really nothing like Super-Rica except that it's generally Mexican. Good food though.

Super-Rica Especial marinade recipe/ingredients

Santa Barbara's La Super-Rica Taqueria has a dish that I've been trying to figure out how to duplicate. The dish is the "Super-Rica Especial". It is "roasted chile pasilla stuffed w/cheese and marinated pork."

The marinade is what I don't understand. I have made an adobo marinade from scratch, as well as a chile colorado sauce from scratch. But it is very different than those. It has a lighter, reddish-orange color and is not as dark and smoky tasting (cumin?) as adobo.

Does anyone know what peppers or other key ingredients they may be using? Maybe it's more of a red mole? Or uses pumpkin seeds? If anyone can point me in the right direction, that would be great.
