Healthy and tasty too.
Make and share this Cheese Stuffed Breaded Fried Nopales (Cactus Paddles) recipe from Food.com.
- Mix first 3 ingredients and place this mixture betwen two nopal slices. You can also use just one slice, spreading filling on one side, rolling it and securing ends with a toothpick.
- Pass through beaten egg and then through bread crumbs.
- Fry in hot oil and serve.
We have two nopal plants in the backyard and after serving them grilled w/ salt, cooked in salsas, and fried with eggs, I was out of ideas. I tried this recipe and as-is, my husband loved them. I made mine without ham, and they were great too! Thank you for a recipe that made me look extra creative!
