Chapulines plain recipe (Grasshoppers)


The grasshoppers of Merci Mercado come from the Central Valleys of Oaxaca, recognized worldwide for their quality and delicate herbal taste. These grasshoppers are completely dehydrated (not fried), giving them a delicious "crunchy taste" that makes them irresistible.

Aside from being delicious, the grasshoppers are an excellent source of protein with a light “carbon footprint.” We take pride in knowing that grasshoppers serve as a health benefit for you and the planet.
