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".

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?

Oh heck yeah!! Love nopalitos, fresh or from a jar. Iíve just been buying the jars lately. I donít really have a recipe, just throw them in with whatever Iím in the mood for. My favorite nopalitos tacos are brisket/bacon/potato/onion/jalapeno/nopalito (especially after a morning hunt). Brisket/egg/nopalito. Breakfast sausage/bacon/nopalito. Papas con chorizo with nopalitos, and chorizo & egg with nopalitos. roflmao
