ISO – A substitute for choricero and ñora peppers

SnackHappy | Sep 7, 2011 03:09 PM

Hello Home Cooking hounds,

Recently, I've been trying my hand at Spanish cuisine. Finding ingredients hasn't been that hard. but finding Spanish dried peppers has been a bit difficult. I've managed to get my hands on some ñoras, but they are pretty expensive. For choriceros, I've only found the flesh in small jars, but the amount I get for the money makes it unaffordable.

So I'd like to know what you guys suggest as subs for these peppers. I can get get my hands on a wide variety of Mexican dried chiles as well as a few from South-America. Alas, Southwestern chiles are pretty much impossible to find here.

Thanks in advance for your suggestions,
