Directions

  1. Heat the vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the potatoes, cover, and cook, stirring occasionally until they begin to soften, about 10 minutes. Stir in the nopalitos, onion, tomato, and jalapeno. Season to taste with salt, and continue cooking and stirring until the onion has softened and turned translucent, and the potatoes are tender, about 10 minutes more.

This was great, only I used fresh cactus as I don't like the canned ones.

I found this recipe quite simple to make yet very tasting. Though to add a bit of spice, I added a habanero pepper as well.

Great recipe! I used fresh nopalitos and prepared them by boiling in water for 5-6 minutes, draining them, and boiling again for 5-6 minutes.

I had half a 30-ounce jar of nopalitos leftover from pollo con nopales (a friend's recipe), so I decided to give this a try. It's excellent! I was worried it would be a bit bland, but with the optional jalapeno and salt to taste, it's perfect. The flavor of the potatoes meshes well with the nopalitos and tomato. Thanks for a great recipe!

We love Mexican food and this is a fabulous recipe. Very easy to make. I didn't have fresh tomatoes but used canned diced tomatoes which worked just fine. Thanks!

Excellent flavor, easy prep. Only question: is the Nopales supposed to get a bit gooey? I love it even still.

We loved it! I added 1 lb. extra lean ground beef and it was yummy. The beef actually made the nopalitos not gooey. It was delicious!
