prickly pear margarita

I have had these before and very tasty - but never tried it at home
i found this recipe
followed the directions - but...
when i cut open the pear... it was all seeds - i didnt really see any "meat"
i basically squeezed it through cheesecloth - but in essence it was just juice i was getting out of it
did i do something wrong? or are there various types of prickly pears?
Cactus pears are *loaded* with seeds. Just do a search for "prickly pears" or "tuna" and you're bound to find results that support this. I prefer the goldish green variety of cactus pears for their sweeter flavor and brighter *happier* color. The red are just less appealing to me overall, and much more messy.
There's some suggestions for you in the links I've included here. Try adding the meats in a blender and adding a tiny bit of water ... Strain that after a quick whirl. Slightly diluted, yes, but it just might work.
