Looking for chipotle chile in Calgary

alau2 Jun 14, 2009 03:31 PM

Hi, I'm trying a recipe that calls for "chipotle chile in adobo sauce."
Does anyone know where I can get that in Calgary? There was no sign of something like that in the aisles of Superstore (Sunridge).

    I found mine at the WalMart in Marlborough. They have a good selection of hot sauces & salsas as well.

        Got a small can ($3.99) from Boca Loca on 11th Street SW today! Larger cans also available ($5.99).

          The small can at Safeway was $2.49.

            I bought some at the Crowfoot Safeway yesterday. They were on the very top shelf in the Mexican food section. I also saw them at Salsita on Northmount the other day (no corn tortillas, though!).

              Jetgirly: seriously, no corn tortillas? That's bizarre.

                  I'm sure I saw some at the Midtown Co-op (produce section), with a bunch of other dried varieties. I'm also sure you could pick some up at Boca Loca (1512 11th Street SW) or Salsita (777 Northmount Drive NW).

                    I am surprised that you did not find it in Superstore as they often have more of a variety of sauces and condiments. I have the Embasa and La Costena brands in the larder which I think I must have picked up either at Sobeys or Safeway here in Edmonton so I would expect the same for Calgary.
