You really should try grasshoppers at least once in your life. And that's what chapulines are — fried or roasted grasshoppers. A popular snack in the Mexican state of Oaxaca, chapulines are seasoned with garlic, lime, and salt.. You'll often find them sold by the scoop by street vendors. You can eat them plain, wrapped in a tortilla with a few slices of avocado, or mixed with sausage and cheese. Believe it or not, grasshoppers are a healthy, high protein food. Before you are six-feet under, give chalupines a try. You might be surprised by their mild, smokey flavor.
