Chipotles in adobo sauce?

I can't for the life of me find those canned chipotles in adobo sauce anywhere , is there some shortage I am not aware of?

  1. Where are you not looking? These days, almost any grocery store has them in the "Mexican" section. In my area, No Frills and Foodland had them in the last few weeks.

      Right foodyduddey, I would suggest that many shoppers do not take time for a slow stroll through Supermarket International aisles. Always a possible source for many multi country items! I love these so much I always bring back from Mexico many tins at a third to a quarter the price, and I have GTA wholesalers I have been dealing with for decades, easier for one out in the GTA to acquire a larger available choice of sourced items!.

        I checked Fiesta Farms, 2 No Frills a Fresh Co and Loblaws at Christie and Dupont. I know these stores like the back of my hand and know where they keep stuff. If you find some, please tell me!

      2. I had the exact same problem two weeks ago. Checked five supermarkets, including the "Mexican" and "International" sections. Finally found them at Loblaws Queens Quay - bought the only two cans they had on the shelf.

          1. I agree these are hit-and-miss to find. Sometimes grocery stores have them, sometimes they don't. Our Sobey's recently cut back its little Tex-Mex section and no longer have them. I managed to find a large can at the Rabba at Front & Sherbourne recently, on the bottom of an end of an aisle nowhere near any related products. We divided and froze them for future use, since one or two of those things go a long way in most recipes.

            1. Pusateri's have them - I had to ask and wait about 10 minutes while two people searched for them. But I got them!!
