I also make this for my husband who is from Mexico. Instead of using the jared nopales, use fresh. Its a lil more time consuming but the flavor is 1000% better. Most Hispanic stores carry these and some even have them peeled and chopped. All you do is boil them with a handful of cilantro, 2 garlic cloves, 1 whole onion and salt. Once these have boiled drain and rinse. To give your tortas a lil more flavor add the whole dried shrimp. Just heat them a lil then grind them up in the food processor (me personally I use my blender...works the same). I also use chili guajillos and 2 chili arboles instead of the chili anchos. Your recipe is great but these simple additions will make a big difference.
