Where to find Chapulines or Escamoles - DFW

soulslinger | Jan 23, 2008 08:43 AM

I was curious if there are any Latin themed stores that might carry these Mexican bugs...more like delights. For those of you that have missed the Rick Bayless in Mexico City (Mexico One Plate at a Time) and also Andrew Zimmerman (Bizzarre Foods - Mexico City) episodes these are ant larvae (escamoles) harvested from the roots of the agauve plant(used to make tequila) or maguey (mezcal) plants and chapulines are fried crickets usually tossed with chili powder.
