Hot Sauce Made With Ants—Would You Eat It?

Funny how people get grossed out about eating ants, cockroaches, and scorpions, but are okay when it comes to shrimp, crab, and lobster, which are basically the ocean version of the same class of animals.

In season there’s a similar sauce in Mexico, I’ve had around Puebla ( Pahuatlan). People do eat ant in tortillas, but I find the taste to be really too much, its weird, a bit pungent, hard to describe… But when its in the hot sauce and you eat eat in a taco with, eggs, meat even cheese, its really delicious and odd at the same time.  But if a local ever says, “Tourists love this” it means that locals don’t touch it with a thirty foot pole 😉

Compared to sauce like ketchup or Sriracha, Kumache hot sauce would be more healthy with that protein.
