Tender Cactus Tostadas

Cactuses or Nopales, as we call them in Mexico, are delicious… and are a great addition to any healthy diet and lifestyle. Nopales definitely deserve a larger post, but this one will be short and sweet… stay tuned for the next one. This recipe is for when you are in hurry, but still want to grab a tasty bite.

 I usually eat these tostadas for breakfast! They are fulfilling and  yummy

Ingredients (makes 2 tostadas)

½ avocado, diced or Mexican Guacamole

2 slices of smoked turkey breast, diced (want to make it vegetarian? they still taste delicious with no turkey breast!)

Prepared tender cactus or nopalitos (I recommend nopalitos Doña Maria, you can get them at Whole Foods or at a Mexican grocery store)

Feta cheese or queso fresco crumbled

1 small bunch of scallions, finely chopped

Cherry tomatoes

2 Tostadas


Spread the guacamole or avocado on each tostada. On top of the avocado, place the smoked turkey breast and tender cactuses. Sprinkle a tablespoon of chopped scallions and crumbled feta cheese or queso fresco on top of each tostada, and garnish with cherry tomatoes. Also try with refried beans.

If you try these tostadas let me know if you liked them!

    I don’t think I’ve ever had cactus. I’m adding this to my “must try” list!
