Skinnerback, I know youíve got to have a recipe or this. Who else does?

I hit a 24hr taco joint a couple nights a week at work, and one of my favorites is their nopalito. That the flat parts of a prickly pear cactus

Buy the pre-cleaned pads at Fiesta or other Mexican grocer. Slice 1/2" thick and coat with olive oil and season like fajitas. Pan fry 3-5 minutes a side in bacon fat with onion. Serve on fresh corn tortillas.

I go through a big jar of Dona Maria nopalitos a week, they're the best I've found, pick them up at Walmart. Save the juice and use it on a variety of items. Pretty good over a salad. I save the juice on nopalitio, jalapeno's, olives and pickles. Works great on everything!

Pour a 30 ounce jar, juice and all into a big pot of beans and some sliced jalapeno's.

Clean and wash the pad then slice and dip in a little salt, allot of the old timers eat it that way. A saying among native Americans was, "With cactus you can survive, with cactus and mesquite you get fat".

We make a bunch of prickly pear jelly every year. Have the strain it through a cheese clothe to get the seeds but it's awesome.

While you at it, this fall if we have any mesquite beans, gather up a bushel of them. Then research mesquite bean coffee. It takes a little work to dry roast them and then grind them up for "coffee" but if you like it, it worth every minute. My grandpa loved his mesquite bean coffee.

I have heard of this. The coffee is supposed to be sweet. But is there caffeine?
