Tortillas with Cactus and Cheese

"It's a very simple taco quesadilla that's tangy with a hint of heat. Top with sour cream if you like, but they're great on their own."

Mama Rivas aka Pablo's Hottie

this is a very bland recipe, next time do what i did, rinse the nopales (cactus) until the slime is gone. in a pan heat up 2 tbs oil and add 1/4 c. diced onions and cook until it is transparent, then add the cactus, cook for another 5 min. then add 1 tsp cumin powder, and 1 tsp chili powder. in a bowl put in 1 tbs flour and 2 tbs water stir and add to cactus, cook for another 5 min or until a gravy forms. enjoy, oh and don't forget to add salt to taste.


I liked it!! We eat Nopales all the time. I used fresh. I sliced and boiled it with onions and tomatillo skins to cut down on the slime. Nice taco, and great on the grill!!


Good with sour cream on top. These were a little plain-tasting; I would maybe add diced tomatoes next time.
