Sometimes served in a taco, escamoles are cooked ant larvae typically found around the roots of the tequila agave or American aloe plant. Some hapless diners don’t even realize what is until it’s too late, as escamoles are noted to have a buttery flavor. And just so you know, the bugs you found in your Taco Bell tortilla weren't escamoles—just a glaring health violation.
