    Opuntia and food cacti recipes

    Dont use the old big pads. Use the thin new fresh green growth are less fibery and more crisp...keep that in mind when making nopalitos i boil them with this seasoning and it may also be kade on ghe grill but i prefer my method for starters to get the taste and the grilling for more experienced nopal eaters

    Opuntia and food cacti recipes

    Thats Aztec style gourmet. We make a fresh salsa salsa with the opuntia pads. I have a thread on this salad that is traditionally eaten in mexico..i basically de-spine the cactus and cut it, wash it, then boil it with an onion and or a garlic and enough salt depending on the serving size. i serve the choped nopalitos with fresh diced tomatoes, cilantro, onions, fresh diced geen peppers, and salt to taste, and one super thinly minced fresh garlic could also be added for a more robust flavor. Serve like a dip for salsa with chips.

    True pachanoi or PC pachanoi?

    On true pachanoi the spines point downward, on the pc they point upward.
