Chipotles in Adobe

Anyone know where to get some chipotles in adobe sauce? They have them on Freshdirect, but I'm trying to find them on the upper west side for tomorrow night. Any hints would be helpful, even just brands.

  1. Roland distributes Chipotle Peppers in Adobo Sauce which is made in Mexico. It has a some kind of Hechsher which I can't identify, and I've never seen any other brands with any sort of Hechsher. Try Kalustyan's on Lexington Ave.

      If the product is made in Mexico it may be the Vaad of Mexico City. They have a symbol that looks like the letters VK on top of two linked Alephs. I followed your link to Roland but could not get a large enough picture of the can to discern the actual symbol.

        I found a larger picture....

        looks like Vaad of Mexico.

          You are correct - definitely looks like the Vaad of Mexico City.

    2. I've never seen them with a hechser, though I did once find plain chipotles (not in sauce) in Brach's in Queens.

      1. So happy to see someone found this. I always check the chipotles in adobo in my grocery store, wishing one day to see a kosher symbol. Now, I will have to search for Roland.

        1. I just returned from Kalustyan's and they carry it. I decided to use it in my cholent. If you haven't been to Kalustyan's, check it out. There are a lot of products with Hechsers, and the owner is quite knowledgeable and helpful.

          Shabbat Shalom, Sharon

          1. A lot of Roland's products are kosher but some are not, I have seen them with different hechshers.
