Help? Southwestern Peppers in CT

Need some help folks.

Really would like to make some of Bobby Flay's signature dishes out of cookbooks I've picked up, but I can't seem to find a reliable source for finding southwestern peppers other than jalapenos. Suggestions in New Haven county would be very appreciated!!

      1. One of the best resources for Mexican products, whether it is fresh peppers or not, is C-Town, a big grocery store in the heart of the Latino community on Grand Avenue at Ferry. There are others that cater more towards produce Latinos want like US1 Farm Market on Ella T Grasso Boulevard and US1.
        Right now, many stores, like S&S, have the Hatch style of green peppers (or look-alikes), in stock.
        I encourage you to look at my user content map on Google Maps and look at the BLUE pinned locations, as they are places to buy food or drink. There are descriptions about what they offer. I cover a large area around NH.

          That map is VERY helpful. You have a great list going there. I'll give C-town a shot, although I may have to bring my flak jacket along......:)

          I also found Bella Bella on there.....I will definitely visit!!! Thank you much!!!!

            I'm not an expert, but I've never had an issue with being in that part of town. I haven't ever been there after dark. When I went into C-Town the last time a man helped me with my Spanish so I could find the chorrizos and Mexican cheeses. I've bought the best poblanos there!
