Insects, like grasshoppers, are part of cuisines all over the world. In Mexico grasshoppers are part of multiple native cuisines. This product comes from Oaxaca where it is a common ingredient in many dishes.
Mezcal, which is a spirit we very much associate with Oaxaca, is often enjoyed with a bit of Sal de Chapulin. Slice a fresh and sweet orange. Dip the freshly cut slices in Sal de Chapulin and suck them while drinking mezcal in between. The Sal de Chapulin adds a really great synergy to the mezcal.
