      qero is the restaurant in encintas. I don't know of any places in SD that sell the peppers. You can try this site though

    2. Not sure if they are available, Latin Chef even uses the frozen type, IIRC they purchase them from a distributor in LA.

      1. I've gotten them fresh at Northgate Gonzalez, but don't know if they're always in stock. You can get the paste there if not.

          I think they used to have them at Andres' market on Morena, but they were jarred or canned and not fresh.
