Nopales (cactus)
Nopales, the fleshy oval pads of the prickly pear cactus, have become popular in the Latin influenced kitchens of Southern California.

When cooked, they are soft yet crunchy, with the slipperiness of okra, and a flavor reminiscent of green beans.

A little tricky to handle,the thorns can be removed by holding the pad firmly and scraping with a paring knife.
