Looking for Authentic Mexican Food Items in Edmonton, Alberta
I am hoping someone can help me find a shop (or shops) that sell the following items: a tortilla press, different varieties of Mexican cheeses especially cojita (sp?), ancho chilies as well as other chilies (not just jalapeno and Serrano peppers like Safeway), salsas, etc. and other ingredients that I can’t think of right now, but that you would use in authentic Mexican recipes. Thanks!
All of your answers will be solved by visiting Tienda Latina on Argyll and 99st. Solid selection of cheeses, supplies, chilies, and even some in house Torta's.

Haven't been in Edmonton for a couple of years now but when I was in the city I LOVED this place. Queso fresco, achiote paste, banana leaves, TONS of dried chilies, and on the weekend prepared Mexican and Salvadoran food: tamales, Chicharrónes!!!, really great. Most times I was in there where a couple 20 or 30 somethings working and they were very happy to point out products and give suggestions.
