Cactus Season: Nopal and Chorizo Tacos

My cactus plant is just in a giving mood these days. So much new growth to eat and tons and tons of new prickly pears waiting to ripen makes me about as happy as anything can.


Last night I grilled the cleaned paddles after rubbing them with olive oil and a little salt. I have a whole stack to use now throughout the week. The first thing I did was cut up one paddle and make a taco.

I just had some very spicy dry chorizo (from the new and excellent butcher at Mi Favorita Market in Napa), but you could use any dry Mexican or Spanish chorizo), gouda and the nopales.


Healthy and indulgent! That' s my kind of snack!



We would like to feature this recipe on our blog. Please email haleyglasco@gmail.com if interested. Thanks :)
