Guacamole del Sur
La Sandia

Yes, that's right, there are grasshoppers in this guacamole. Grasshoppers add a pleasant crunch to this regional take on traditional guacamole from chef Richard Sandoval of the La Sandia Restaurants. In Oaxaca, these delicacies are known as chapulines. They may be a little hard to come by, but a good bet is to try a Mexican grocery store.
