Juan Cruz and Pedro Mendoza search for red agave worms while cultivating their maguey cacti; the worms end up in tequila bottles to both certify the regional authenticity and to confirm the proof of the brew, as well as on dinner plates fried with corn tortillas, refried beans, grated cheese, sour cream, and avocado to make Chinicuiles con Aguacate, near Matatlán, Mexico.
