June 13, 2010: My daughter went on a mission trip to Mexico. When she came home, she described a dish she'd eaten there and asked if I could please try to make it. By her description, and based on my limited knowledge of Mexican food and the Spanish language, I figured out that she'd had Pollo con Nopales. SB has some incredible Mexican food recipes, so I knew she'd be my best bet in finding a recipe for Pollo con Nopales. She created this recipe especially for me and my daughter!! I made this for dinner tonight and it was incredible!! I did only use one jalapeno so it wouldn't be too spicy. My daughter says it's almost identical to the dish she had in Mexico, except the nopales were diced and not in strips. I served it with rice cooked with a little cumin and some chicken/tomato bouillon. Thank you so much, SB, for helping me make this meal for my daughter!! **UPDATE - June 23, 2010 ** We had this for dinner again tonight and this time my 14-year-old daughter (the one who requested the dish originally) made it! It turned out even better this time!
