Bought canned "Tuna with Sweet Corn" - ideas?

The 5.82 oz. Goya cans, originally $1.79, were 50 cents in the "discontinued" bin. Since we know about the phenomenon of the Incredible Shrinking Tuna Can, with its increasingly watery contents, I picked up a couple. At home I noticed that the "best by" date is this month so perhaps the supermarket will still be carrying it, and is just clearing old stock. It is chunk light tuna, sweet corn, soybean oil, water, onion, sweet pepper, sugar, MSG, vinegar, spices, and paprika.

The "spices" part is the $64.000 question. Is this stuff hot? What is it typically used for? I can see it with mayo and celery, for tuna salad sandwiches, if it's not spicy-hot. If it is, since I have a low chile tolerance, I'll have to combine it with some sort of dairy to tame it...maybe a quesadilla preparation.
