Hungarian Peppers

I have a recipe for czech meatloaf I want to find a purveyor who carries hungarian peppers to chop in to the meatloaf figuring that is the closest I will find to Czech peppers which I don't even know if there is such a thing. Any store, market, or online place would be greatly appreciated.

  1. I would check your local farmers market, esp. if they have vendors that sell lots of peppers, onions, leeks, etc.

    1. Also, they seem to be in every Latino-esque supermarket (and is there a generic adjective for these places that doesn't sound so awkward?) ... so perhaps check out your local Cardenas, King Ranch, El Super, etc.?

        I just saw them today at Big Saver Foods on Garvey Avenue in Rosemead, $1.99/lb.

        1. My husband's parents are Hungarian and Czech. That means when he's having a bad week, all he wants is Hungarian comfort food.

          My mother in law SWEARS by Jon's Market. Here are the locations:

          They stock a wide variety of Eastern European foods, including the peppers you are looking for. They will likely be labeled "yellow peppers" and they look like this: http://foodandwinehedonist.files.word...
          They're about twice the size of a medium jalapeno.

          Can you post the recipe? My husband LOVES meatloaf, and a Czech meatloaf would send him over the moon.

          Have fun!
