Guacamole del Sur

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.

Combine the first 5 ingredients in a Molcajete glass. Combine the grasshoppers and cheese in a small bowl. Muddle the contents of the glass and combine with the grasshoppers and cheese.
