Cricket Tacos


  • 50 large crickets
  • corn tortillas
  • 1 can beans
  • 1 cob corn
  • 2 tomatoes
  • 2 nopales
  • 1/2 head of lettuce
  • 1/2 onion
  • 1 avocado
  • cheese - however much you desire!
  • 1 stick butter
  • 1 tbsp salt
  • cilantro
  • limes


    Dice onions and nopales and mix with salt in a bowl. Heat stove top to medium and cook onions and nopales in a pan for about 5-6 min or until slightly crisp. Add prepared crickets to the mix and cook for another 5-6 minutes. In another pan, cook beans over medium heat until warm. Add tomatoes and corn.
    Combine all ingredients and cook for another 5 minutes.Continually season to taste preference.

    On a large, hot surface begin to cook your tortillas to warm them up. Lightly butter your hot surface and cook the tortillas just enough to make them golden on each side. Cook for about 45 seconds and then flip.
    Set tortillas, cilantro, limes, prepped cheese, chopped lettuce, and cut avocado to the side to add to your taco. Turn off the heat and stuff your taco with your warm and cold filings.
