    I've never seen those in bulk. I recently paid $2.50 for a 2 ounce
    cello pack of some really nice ones; haven't tried them yet. I
    misplaced them when I made a big pot of pinto beans last week and then I
    found them *after* I had already seasoned the beans with morita peppers.

    I usually buy the morita-style chipotles in big bags and keep them in
    the freezer.

    Chile ancho and mulato are typically around that same price here.
    (Understanding that mulato is a variable term but in this case it refers to
    a dried pepper similar to chile ancho. )
