Fire roasted tomatoes at a reasonable price?

Last trip over the border we picked up a few cans of fire roasted tomatoes and now we are completely hooked on the extra smokey depth they add to our dishes. Unfortunately I have not seen them in many places and when I have, I am blown away by the price -- paying $8/can for tomatoes takes all the fun out of cooking.

Any one have an idea where I can buy reasonably priced canned fire roasted tomatoes in Vancouver?

  1. Save On Foods has fire roasted tomatoes made in the usa where I assume they are more popular then here.I got them on sale for a little over 2 bucks a small can.

    1. Fred Meyers is the place to get them, the quality is far superior than the one at Save on. I like the S&W brand, also try their canned black beans, chickpeas and other canned tomatoes.

        Bumping this thread to see if anyone has found other sources for fire-roasted tomatoes in Vancouver. I've never had them and I want to try them in a butter chicken recipe!

        1. I buy them at SaveOn, Semihamoo Mall South Surrey. They are in the Mexican section....called Pastene Fire Roasted Diced Tomatoes...398ml.
          Can't remember the price but they must have been reasonable or woudn't have purchased them.

            Sounds like Save On is the way to go. Thanks for the heads up that they are to be found in the Mexi-aisle.
