      Really? I just called one and they said they don't carry them and doubt any other safeways do. Are you sure you didn't see habaneros?

      Try a Bel Air market.

        or make the trek to Corti's, but call first!

          I saw them at Corti's about an hour ago.

            If you're making jerk, feel free to invite me over. I'll bring the Red Stripe.

              I was making jerk pork, but I ditched the idea and decided to go with Cuban Sandwiches. After all, the super bowl is in Miami! Thanks everyone for the suggestions. I'm new to the area and after hearing so much about Corti's I can't wait to check it out.

              I know you're not looking for a habanero now, but how about checking the Nugget markets in the future? I've only been to one in that area, but they seem to have a lot of specialty items.

                The Nuggett. My husband has gotten them there.

                  Scotch bonnet chile Notes: This chile is almost indistinguishable from the habanero, except that it's a bit smaller. It's popular in the Caribbean. Substitutes: habañero chile OR Serrano chilies (use twice as many) OR jalapeno peppers (use twice as many)
