"Strange" Foods of Mexico

Add header image

Choose file... or enter url:
Chapulines

Grasshoppers cooked in chili and lime
Criadillas

Bull testicles. "Ow, My Balls!" indeed.
Iguana

They do eat iguanas in southern Mexico.
Gusanos de maguey

Worms from the maguey plant.
Jumiles

Beetles.

Actually, I think I did find these in the food at Taco Bell, but I'm not sure if it was intentional.
Huitlacoche

Black corn fungus, also known as Mexican truffles.
Menudo

Soup made with cow stomach and a chili broth. To Anglos, it's gross. To Mexicans, it's a hangover cure.
Brain tacos
Escamoles

Ant eggs, also known as Mexican caviar! How en la chingada did I miss that one when I first made this list?

You won't find these at Taco Bell or anywhere else that serves "Mexican" food for gabachos.

Menudo - not that different from Pepper Pot soup! And my Abbruzese grandmother used to cook tripe in tomato sauce with some red pepper flakes in the gravy!
