      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).

      This is one of my all time favorite breakfasts to eat, as when I was in college, I ate nopalitos and eggs tacos often. It brings back great memories. Sometimes, I like to eat it along with fresh seasonal fruit. Thank you for sharing.

      I found this to be a very easy and different dish to make. I've always wanted to try nopalitos, and this was the perfect opportunity. I recommend it highly for those who want to try something different and yet easy to put together.
