New Mexico Green Chili in LA

The Whole Foods in Woodland Hills sells Bueno (Albuquerque) frozen green chili. Bueno Pasole too.
I assume that its sold at other Whole Foods' in LA. I know there are New Mexican's in LA who re in need of a chile fix!

  1. Some Albertson's sell Bueno chiliess well. It's cheaper at Albertson's than Whole Foods, but not all of them carry it. The ones in more Latino neighborhoods are your best bets. I've found it at the Albertson's down on Crenshaw south of the I-10 and a few others.

      Albertson's on Hillhurst ,just south of Los Feliz Blvd, carries Bueno green & red in the frozen section.

    2. Woohoo! Do you know if they have the frozen red chile too? My mom pays the $50 shipping fee to get her supply and shares some with me. She swears by it (both parents born and raised in NM) and now I'm hooked too. I told her I'd split the fee with her next time. This will be great news if we can get it locally. It's about time!

      1. Yep, I've also got the red chilie on many an occasion.

        1. I've gotten the Bueno red and green chiles at the Albertsons in Culver City. They had red, green - hot and mild as well as autumn roast. Its kinda a strange assortment of rare finds at that albertsons.

          1. Which Albertsons in Culver City, the one on Washington near Lincoln?
