Nopales are my Mom and Dad’s favorite! They love them, on Sunday we went to Costco and my Mom found this bag of Nopales and bought them.
They are really traditional from here, and easy to make! You can have them as a Main dish with some warm Corn tortillas or as a breakfast with Scrambled eggs! You need to try them and I’m sure they’ll be your favorite too!
1.5 kg Nopales
2 garlic cloves
1 Tomato Chopped
2 Tablespoons Onion finely chopped
1 Garlic clove
2 Tablespoons Red and Orange Pepper
1/2 Tablespoon Chicken soup powder
420g Tomato puree
On a Saucepan place the Nopales with the 1/2 Onion and 2 garlic cloves, you need to cover them with water for 30 minutes. We do this to take some of the slime out of the Nopales.
Now you need to drain them, taking the onion and garlic cloves away.
While they cool a little bit You can start to chop the tomato,onion,garlic,red and orange pepper.
On another Saucepan you need to fry the Nopales with all of the chopped things and add pepper, salt, 1/2 tablespoon of chicken soup and the 420g of tomato puree.
And there you go, now your ready to eat them 🙂
