ISO Jumbo Lump Crab Cake recipe from J Gilbert's Wood-Fired Steaks

I've been googling around looking for a lump crab cake recipe that sounds similar. I'll share what I've found, but am not sure any of these is quite it.

Here is the description from the menu at J Gilbert's:
"Maryland style crab cakes. Taos tortilla mix with honey lemon dressing and house made pico mayonnaise"

From searching, I saw one other restaurant that had the exact same description for the crab cakes:

Since both menu descriptions use the *exact same verbiage* to describe the crab cakes, I'm guessing they're made elsewhere and sold to restaurants...which is fine, I'd just like to figure out how to make them.

Is "Taos tortilla mix" just a blend of chili spice seasonings?

If push comes to shove, I will just keep experimenting and see what I come up with. Seems making crab cakes is not unlike making meatloaf (egg, breadcrumbs or bread, seasoning), so I'm sure I can come up with something that makes me happy. But if I could make them as they do at J Gilbert's, I'd be ecstatic!

The Ruth's Chris recipe on this link sounds like a good starting point (using less breadcrumbs, adding chili spices):

Any advice?
