La Fe Chipotle Sauce- Where in Boston Area?

They use this as one of their table sauces at Howling Wolf in Salem, and I like it a bit better than the Day of the Dead version I've been mail ordering from La. Has anyone seen this at a Boston area (but not So. Shore)store? Thx much.

  1. are you looking for chipotles in adobo (intense condiment), or chipotles in adobo mixed with other ingredients, like a salsa? If the former, I make it and would be happy to give you some.

    1. I'd have said Hi-Lo last year, but... maybe Sunrise Market in Allston? Or El Chavo in Roslindale?

      1. Both Mayfair and La Favorita in Allston carry La Fe products, I've never noticed a chipotle sauce in particular, but then, I've never looked for it.

          I live in East somerville, mostly central american not mexican markets, but lots of crossover and I'll look around here.

            I followed your lead and tried both places last wk. La Fav didn't have it and i didn't see any La Fe products while i was looking. Mayfair had La Fe sauce picante (and Bufalo but not chipotle); phooey. I wonder about Union Sq stores.....

              I tried Los Amigos Market and the Allisson Market on Broadway in East Somerville....they don't carry La Fe, do carry El Yucateco...

              thx bear, et al. it is a sauce in a small 'shaker bottle' (wonder what that is called in the trade), prob just pureed chipotles and vinegar. i'll check out all the suggestions here.

            2. My favorite is Bufalo (correct spelling) brand which can sometimes be found at latino grocery stores, or ordered on line:
