Chapulín -

Chapulín (tʃapu'lin), is a locust of the genus Sphenarium, which is commonly eaten in the Mexican region. The term is commonly used in Mexico and derived from the word Nahuatl chapolin [t͡ʃapolin] or chapolimeh [t͡ʃapolimeʔ]. In Spain and most countries using Spanish, the word for grasshoppers is saltamontes or saltón

One of the areas of Mexico where chapulin is widely consumed is Oaxaca, where the food is sold as a snack at local sporting events

In addition to Oaxaca, chapulin is famous in the vicinity of Mexico City, such as Tepoztlán, Cuernavaca and Puebla.
