    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!
