Washington Gets Cactus Tacos
This should keep the politicians busy for awhile, because cactus tacos are delicious, and wandering-eye politicians in Washington really just want something delicious.
El Centro’s Lackluster Cactus Taco
…The muted Army green-colored slices of prickly pear taste much like you might expect: very similar to bland green beans with a slightly waxy chew. The cactus is even cut into a similar shape.
I really, really wanted to like this interesting vegetarian alternative to El Centro’s beef tongue or pork shoulder tacos. But no such luck. Though steamed and grilled, the nopales simply can’t muster any umph.
Ack! I guess it’s not so delicious after all.
