The Chinicuiles / Agave red worms from Merci Mercado are selected by their quality, freshness, and size. They could be the main ingredient on a traditional dish or the basis for a delicious home-made sauce!
The Chinicuiles / Agave red worms live in the roots of the agave plant, feeding only from it which gives them a characteristic smoky and exquisite flavor. They are a Mexican delicacy!
By the way, these are the worms you find at the bottom of mezcal bottles!
