Lily's Cafe (Malibu) secret sauce/salsa?

I've recently moved away but am dying for the type of super hot yellow sauce/salsa that Lily's Cafe serves up in Malibu. Any ideas? Scotch Bonnet maybe? Even if I could half-way recreate it I'd be happy. Any ideas?

  1. I think Lily's has the best hot sauce/salsa in LA - it's even better than Tacos Por Favor's. Are you missing the breakfast burritos? I'm pretty sure they roast the chilis to get that distinctive smokiness. The owners just may tell you what type of pepper they use if you call and explain your circumstances. If you do get any more info please post!
