If you love roasted red peppers, if you enjoy them on chimichangas or like to make roasted red pepper soup, if you like them in or on anything, crave the savory sweetness they add to a meal, then you will mourn with me the fact that I cannot find a local vendor for my canned red peppers anymore.
I used to buy them at King Soopers for $6.99. Yes. Only $6.99 for a 5-pound 8-ounce can which held an average of 36 roasted red peppers. About a year and a half ago, during one of their ridiculous re-arrangements, they discontinued them.
I figured I’d find them somewhere, but alas, I have not.
I have checked all the major grocers as well as disounters like Big Lots. I have even ventured into Asian markets and scoured the Mexican Carnicerias. I had such hopes when Rancho Liberio started sending me their ads. But to no avail.
Sure, I can order the peppers from an online source. But it is quite a lot more expensive, and naturally, the shipping is exhorbitant.
They are a product of Spain and I miss them so. The Roland Food Company is an importer of such deliciousness. Can anyone tell me where I can get them now? Product #45630. UPC# 0 41224 45630 3

NOTE TO SELF: Go feed garden pepper plants.
