Lolita’s Hot Sauce/Salsa

According to Brian, this is what makes California Burritos great: Lolita’s Hot Sauce.


  • 3-4 serrano peppers
  • 2-3 tbsp tomato paste
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • salt
  • water


  1. Boil the serrano peppers until they’re a bit swollen, soft, and darker green.  Reserve the water
  2. In a food processor, process peppers, tomato paste, salt (to taste), maple syrup and water (add the water in stages until you reach your desired consistency).

Serve with California Burritos.  What’s a California Burrito?  A burrito with carne asada, french fries, cheese, hot sauce/salsa, and sour cream.

    • No, I haven’t compared side by side. I prefer the green sauce from Lolita’s and plus it always gets scarfed down so fast. This recipe works for us at home though, since we’re not in SD anymore.
