Would anyone know where I could find or buy online chipotle chilis and tomatillos (fresh or canned) Thanks

    I suspect that in some recipes picante pimenton - hot smoked paprika - would work as a substitute.

      Thank you babbettemaya. This site will come in handy. I might try the Thanksgiving Menu in this months Gourmet, with the Mexican influence.

        Try http://www.mexgrocer.co.uk/home.php

        It looks like they ship throughout Europe. They even have French as a language selection for the site.

          Since this post was doubled over on the France board, I'll add my link here as well: http://www.mexique-fr.com/boutique/

          But yikes, your mexgrocer link has a way better selection! Kind of pricey shipping, but free after 50 GBP ... oh man, I'm doomed (Pulparindo extra hot!) ... but doomed in a good way :-)
