DIRECTIONS

  • Drain the nopalitos and place in a bowl. Cut them into smaller strips, if you prefer.
  • Add the white onion, cilantro, Mexican oregano, and lime juice to the nopalitos. Stir well. Set aside for 30 minutes to allow the flavors to mingle.
  • While waiting, prepare the toppings.
  • When the nopales mixture has sat for 30 minutes, spread the mixture in a 1.5 or 2 inch deep platter.
  • Top with chopped tomatoes, cilantro, shredded cheese, onion, jalapeños, and avocado.
  • Place the lettuce along the edges of the platter.
  • Serve at room temperature.
