These fat gusanos

Usually associated with Oaxaca, gusanos are also consumed in the state of Jalisco. It shouldn’t come as a surprise: they are the little larvae that attack and grow in agave, which are the plants from which tequila is made. Admittedly, these gusanos — tossed in garlic, onions and a little tequila, and served at the spirit-themed restaurant La Tequila in central Guadalajara — are some of the most monstrous you’re likely to find. With a big taste to match.
