Cactuses are filled with so many spikes that you would think that they are totally inedible right?! WRONG! You definitely can!
Nopales (cactus pads) are a form of vegetable that is made from the prickly pear cacti.
They can be either green or purple and are about the size of your hand. Their consistency is a cross between green beans and green peppers. They are normally eaten with eggs or steak stir fry.
They are typically grown in Mexico and Central America.
