Where does he got all those wonderful spices?
While the state boast many fine gourmet shops, the biggest boost to finding a greater variety of chiles falls squarely on the rise in the Hispanic population. There are markets that specialize in Hispanic imports statewide.
That said, I go straight to the source: Pendery’s in Dallas/Ft. Worth.
Pendery’s claims to be the birthplace of chile blending, what we now call chile powder. I have visited their retail store in Ft. Worth dozens of times, and I’ve been shopping with them online for years. Not once have I been unable to find the chile I’m looking for.
What they don’t have is fresh chiles. As I mentioned, the rise of Hispanic markets has increased availabilty of poblano peppers as well as a larger supply of jalapenos, serranos and habaneros.
