[London] Where to buy chipotle peppers/sauce/peppers in sauce

Haverfoodie Nov 12, 2012 03:07 AM

Hi all,

I'm situated round Southbank and trying to find chipotle pepper-flavoured sauce or chipotle peppers in sauce. Do you know where I might be able to get this, preferably nearby (e.g.: Elephant and Castle? Waterloo?)? I can travel further afield if needed - I live in Finsbury Park.

Thanks lots,

    I get some of my Mexican supplies from coolchile.co.uk, and I'm pretty sure I got a can of their chipotles in adobo last time I was in Waitrose.

      Will check out Waitrose. I need the chipotle sauce for tomorrow, so online sources won't work this time. But thanks for the website - I'll use it in the future when I'm not leaving things to the last minute.

        Was in Sainsbury's a few min ago and there was some jarred chipotles in their 'foodie' section. Good luck - what are you making? I have found the Mexican food options sorely lacking since I moved here and have had to really ramp up my skills to feed the cravings!

        I got a jar of Cool Chile Co chipotles in adobo as well as fresh corn tortillas from their stall at Borough Market some months back. Probably no use for tomorrow.

        Possibly a little out of the way but there is a great Mexican shop in Bethnal Green which has all kinds of grocery items. http://www.casamexico.co.uk/about.php

          I just went to Sainsburys to get some other food and stumbled across two kinds of chipotle paste. My expectations are low, but this time it was just about convenience. Thanks for everyone's help.
