Canned green chilis in Calgary

Does anyone know where I can get canned green chilis. I'm looking to make chili squares out of them and I'm not too keen on bottled ones or the sliced jalapeno found in grocery stores.

  1. they have them in the "mexican" section of all the major grocery chains.

    1. Do you mean the kind used in chiles rellenos? You can definitely find them at Boca Loca or what used to be Boca Loca at 14 St and Northmount. There are quite a few newer latin am markets around town too- one I noted a few months back is on Edmonton Trail right by Cappuccino King, at 24th Ave NE if I'm not mistaken.

      1. You can get Old El Paso canned green chilies, and one other brand I can't remember the name of right now (maybe Casa Fiesta?), at Safeway.

        1. and I should clarify that I mean canned "green chiles," NOT pickled jalapenos, which are an entirely different thing altogether.

          they have the old el paso brand in any major grocery.
