sauteed pepper, nopales & onions.
beans & rice
& mango guacamole.
the first time i had nopales(or cactus), was at my friends jamie & moses' wedding this year.
in fresno, we kept seeing fresh nopales sold at the market, but never bought any. until a few days ago!
i decided to wing it, & prep it like i would peppers&onions.
i added sea salt, cumin, chilli & garlic.
we also made guacamole. instead of tomatoes (nate's not a fan) we added red peppers & mango!
3 avocados to about 1/3 of a red pepper & 1/3 of a mango. (to taste, of course)
(plain basmati rice, added lime &cilantro to it at the end.)
canned pinto beans. sauteed onions, garlic & tomatoes w/ cumin, salt & chilli peppers. added beans towards the end & let them simmer until most of the liquid is gone)
success! nate is obsessed. can't wait to buy more this saturday.
don't forget to try new things. you might be missing out on something... on something even better than nopales.
