Chapulines are a traditional Mexican snack and ingredient. Grasshoppers are roasted and seasoned with chile powder, garlic and lemon.
A Mexican delicacy that dates back to the 16th century. Early Mexicans used chapulines as a natural and sustainable source of high protein food.
Our chapulines are dry roasted rather than wet so that they retain freshness longer, can be eaten from a bowl as a snack, or sautéed in oil for use in traditional Mexican recipes.
Chapulines are simply grasshoppers and they can be prepared in many ways. Our Chapulines are prepared dry so they can be used as a snack food or as an exotic ingredient (at least here in the U.S.). Plus, the dry weight gives you many more chaps than the chapulines prepared in oil. ×
Although chapulines are common in central Mexico, they are almost unheard of here in the U.S. making them an exotic ingredient. A great addition to any menu. ×
