The 10 tastiest insects and bugs in mexico


Chapulines (grasshoppers)

Fans of eating dried grasshoppers say that they’re clean insects because they never touch the ground, they just leap from one leaf to another. Maybe that’s why Mexicans munch on chapulines more than any other edible insect. You can find snackable grasshoppers all over Mexico – in dressy bars or piled up in sacks alongside peanuts on the roadside. They’re nearly always doused in a mild chili powder and lime juice and contain nearly as much protein as salmon.
