Birds-eye chilis in/near Greenwich?

Nikki NYC Jan 9, 2011 05:44 AM

I'm trying out the chicken adobo recipe that was in the NYT this week, which calls for birds-eye chilis. I did my ingredient shopping at Whole Foods but didn't see them there. Any suggestions?

    I've seen both dried red ones, and fresh green ones at Shop-Rite Commerce Park on the Greenwich/Stamford border.

    The fresh ones were in the produce section, sometimes near the lemongrass and ginger, sometimes in the same aisle as the other peppers (red bell, jalapeno, serrano, Cubanelle, etc.) They were in a package, from Melissa's:

    The dried, red version is in the ethnic food aisle, packaged in cellophane. (hanging about mid-aisle, on the left if you are heading towards the back of the store.

      There are lots of ethnic markets in Port Chester and Stamford that may have them. Also, Fairway in Stamford may have them also. Good luck and let me know where you find them.
