Where can I find "aji"/mexican spices?

A Peru chicken recipe calls for aji, does anyone know of a store in the GTA? I'm in the North York area but I'd travel downtown/Scarb/Missisauga for it if I have to. Thanks for your help!

  1. I'm not sure if it's the closest for you, but there are a few South American stores in Kensington Market that would probably have aji. One in particular is located on Augusta just north of Baldwin.

    1. There are some South/Central American restaurants on Wilson, between Keele and Dufferin--Chilean and San Salvadoran. There's probably a grocery store in that area too. There's a Central American/Mexican grocery on Keele, south of Lawrence on the west side. Maybe there.
      There's also a Mexican/Central Am. place on Bathurst north of Lawrence. She has a storefront take-out restaurant selling pupusas, burritos, quesadillas too.
