La Sandia

  • 1 1/2  avocados, skinned and pitted
  • 1/2 Ounce  tomatillo, diced

  •   Sea salt, to taste
  • 1/2 Tablespoon  chopped cilantro
  • 1/10 Ounce  grasshoppers (chapulines)
  • 1/2 Teaspoon  cotija cheese

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.
