Question Hope this is the right place for this question

I make chili verde from a friends recipe. I used Ortega 27oz fire roasted whole green chilis. Unable to get that anymore (the diced just don't seem to taste the same.)
My question is how can I duplicate the Ortega with what type of chilis and how many would equal that can (without fluid)?
TIA. Love this chili!

You’ll have to make your own.

Buy some New Mexico chiles and cook them on a gas stove burner, gas grill or charcoal grill. You want to burn the surface black all over.

Then put the cooked chiles into a bowl and cover the bowl with plastic wrap. Let them sit for 30 minutes. They will steam in the bowl, loosening the skin so they are easy to peel.

Peel off the skin and remove the seeds from inside.

If you can't find New Mexico chiles, you can also use Anaheim, cubanelle or poblano peppers. I cook them as Andy suggested, but I cover them with a kitchen towel because I try to minimize the use of disposable items.
