Chapulines, or grasshoppers, are delicious when wrapped in a corn tortilla and drenched in chile sauce or on their own as a quick snack. They are very popular in oaxaca, mexico, where they are consumed on a daily basis. Chapulines are very high in protein while being low in fat and have a wonderful crunchy texture when cooked properly. Pan-frying them in a skillet with infused oil is a quick and easy method. Grasshoppers in great abundance are hard to find, and even in mexico they are only found in certain states. But if you do come across a good chapulines source, you can use this recipe for fantastic results. Grasshoppers can sometimes contain parasites, so cooking them thoroughly is very important. Removing the wings and legs before cooking is important since they provide an unpleasant texture. Eat them as a crunchy snack with a mexican beer or serve as a filling for tacos with tortillas and toppings.
