Nostalgic for Wild Sauce

Back when I was in college (late 1980's-early 1990's), Taco Bell had these things called "Wild" tacos.
It was the same as a regular taco, except with yummy "wild" sauce on them. Although I didn't consider it particularly hot, it was still tasty, and added a decent kick gentle nudge.

I was so disappointed when they eventually removed it from their menu.

So, years later, I was thrilled when Taco Bell came out with "Fire" sauce. I was hoping it would be that same Wild sauce, in convenient packet form. But alas. The taste and texture are completely different. It's not the same thing at all.

But wait! There may be hope yet.
While surfing around today, I found this site where someone tried duplicating the recipe. (!!!!) I'm definitely going to try it.
When I do, I'll blog about it, either here or on The Jannaverse. :)

UPDATE: I tried the recipe today! You can read about the results HERE!

Any luck duplicating the sauce. I loved the Wild Burritos in particular. Would give my right toenail to be able to duplicate that great sauce.

Anon: Believe it or not, I still haven't gotten around to try making the sauce yet. I can't believe it's taken me this long. As soon as I try it, I promise to blog about it, either here or on the Jannaverse. (Sorry also that it took me so long to reply to your comment!)
