Lovely. We used flour tortillas and it made 4 or 5. Also used nopalitos from a jar since I don't have access to fresh, and used a large scoop of salsa since I didn't have a fresh tomato. They would probably be good with cheese or chorizo or bacon, but that might defeat the purpose of eating nopalitos (to reduce the risk of diabetes).
