      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 http://latinmerchant.com/

    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.
