Thanks in advance.

      You can get canned chipotles in adobo at Loblaws. A small can stored with the other mexican ingredients – where they have the rest of the Herdez products they carry.

          True. But, there is a big Loblaws right at Eglinton and Don Mills.

              That Loblaws Supercentre has a pretty lame 'Mexican' selection - mostly Old El Paso I think; but I could be wrong so take a look. But otherwise, many many grocery stores, such as my small Foodland in Greektown, do carry them these days. You could also try the Metro up the street.

        They are available at most grocery stores. You usually only need one or two and there are always extras in the can. Wrap them individually in plastic wrap and freeze them in a Zip lock freezer bag. That way you have them when you want them.

          They also keep pretty much forever in a glass jar in the fridge

        If you don't find them at your Loblaws go to No Frills.

        I could not find these at my local Loblaws, but I did end up finding them at No Frills, and have seen them at every No Frills I have been to both downtown and in the suburbs.

          Yup. Herdez/San Marcos canned chiles and salsas are widely available throughout the NG empire. Try the Chipotle Sauce--killer as a flavoring or troweled on burgers, beef ribs, eggs or straight from the can as an apres bender restorative 8^)

            I also could find them only at No Frills, not Loblaws. They're in the Mexican foods section.

            I'm thinking you'd be able to find this at one of the Latin American grocers in Kensington Market as well!

              The No Frills at Vic Park and Eglinton usually has them. If not Metro probably has them too...
