El Pato Salsa - What am I missing?

johny 5 | Jun 7, 2010 01:43 AM


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:

Yellow Mustard seed
Black Mustard seed

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

Thank you in advance!
