Cactus are Delicious
The Examiner gets in on the nopales health fad.
Nopales taste good and good for you
The pads are… “nopales” when they’re whole, and “nopalitos” when they’re diced. They taste something like green beans. The fruits are called prickly pears, cactus pears, or “tunas”.
Whether you add sliced or cubed pads to omelette’s or gently urge the fruit from its stickery skin and eat it fresh or cooked into jelly, this cactus has much to offer. Even the seeds can be eaten in soups or dried and ground into flour.
They don’t share any recipes with us. I wonder why? Everybody loves recipes.
