I've never made them before and would like to make them fresh and not canned or jarred. How would I go about this? I have them sitting on the counter mad-dogging me.
You could boil the cut pieces till tender, shock in cold water then make Nopales salad with chopped tomato, onion, cilantro, avocado, queso fresco crumbled, oil and lime.
I add them to pork in red chili sauce. Chili puerco con nopales. Makes a wonderful burrito.
Peel them with a sharp paring knife and slice or dice as needed. They can be slippery so be careful. Saute until tender. I treat them much like a pepper in terms of where I will use them.
