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

Redmeat, love the dedication to this! I have been tinkering around trying to create a sauce similar to KTs as well. However I am thinking since they have to mass produce this sauce.. They would have found ways to simplify the process. (for example the KFC 11 herbs and spices) I am thinking they create a mix of spices and then send these off to the locations to add to whatever liquid they use to puree it. The sauce is to consistent at all locations not to use spices as oppossed to process. So I am going to try this weekend and add some All Spice to the lineup of ingredients and Pumpkin Seeds as well. My feeling on the heat is that they are using habanero powder or maybe even Chili Pequin.. they both take a minute to kick in. The Pequin has a little smoky/sweetness to it and I think they use a pinch. However right now I am using fresh Habanero in the sauce I make and it gives me the same heat hit without changing the flavor in the sauce that I make. I am going to switch over to the habanero powder to go with the theory of all spices being powdered form when added. I will get back to you with the results
