Mail Order Food Sources
Mexican/Latin American Food Sources
From: firstname.lastname@example.org (Anwar Mohammed)
Oh well, I didn't get any replies, so it looks like I'm going mail
order. Several of you asked me to post a summary of replies, so
here are the mail order companies I use:
The prices are typically better than Reyna, and you don't have to
worry about finding something disgusting in your groceries (in addition
to what I mentioned in my earlier post, most of their "fresh" serrano
and poblano peppers are half-rotted when you buy them).
- 1. Frieda's
- -- for fresh and dried peppers, very popular
- 2. Don Alfonso Foods
- -- All sorts of mexican ingredients (prepared moles, too)
& tons of dried chiles...definitely get the catalog.
- 3. Mo' Hotta, Mo' Betta
- -- Mexican and Carribean Salsas and Sauces, they
specialize in habanero/scotch bonnet based stuff.
Also, a wide variety of various dried and smoked
peppers. A really cool illustrated catalog.
- 4. CNS Spices
- -- for california grown habanero/scotch bonnet
- 5. Melissa's
- -- All sorts of fresh and dried peppers, corn husks, tomatillos, and
other necessities for mexican/sw cooking.
Mark Miller's and Diane Kennedy's cookbooks have listings of other
mail order sources. Chile Pepper magazine is a great source for
mail order outlets.
