Nopales con Huevos

Another fine recipe. I wonder if this is going to be a week filled with recipes.

1 lb Nopales – 1 paddle, cleaned
1 tb Oil as required
1/2 lb Tomatoes diced
2 cloves Garlic – peeled and crushed
1/3 c white onion – Finely chopped
4 medium Serrano chilies – seeded & fine diced
1 ts Salt – to taste
2 lg Eggs
2 large Egg whites


Notes: Nopales (cactus leaves) have been a staple of Mexican cooking since pre-Hispanic times. They taste a little like green beans, and they’re a source of vitamins A and C. Fresh nopales with the thorns removed can be found in the produce section at many grocery stores.
