Where to buy a variety of fresh chili peppers

spillenger | Nov 1, 2013 08:43 AM

I'm trying to follow a recipe for authentic chili con carne that calls for the following ingredients:

3 whole sweet fresh chilies like Costeño, New Mexico, or Choricero, stems and seeds removed
2 small hot chilies like Arbol or Cascabel, stems and seeds removed
2 whole Chipotle chilies canned in adobo sauce, plus 2 tablespoons sauce, stems and seeds removed
3 whole rich fruity chilies like Ancho, Mulatto, Negro, or Pasilla, stems and seeds removed

We're talking fresh, not dried. My local (Silver Spring) Whole Foods has just about none of these. Anyone know a source in the Montgomery County/DC area?
