Notes about this recipe

  • mjes on May 10, 2018

    If you like nopales, you will like this recipe. I made the recipe with the chiles de árbol using only 2 chiles. I used queso fresco and fried chile salsa. The salsa was not my first choice but was what I had the ingredients for. This is a great taco for people who like nopales; a good, non-slimy taco for those who've never had nopales; but it's not so special that it will convert nopales haters.
