Nopal, also known as prickly pear cactus, is a type of edible cactus commonly found in Mexico and other arid regions. It has flat, oval-shaped pads covered in spines, which are removed before consumption. Nopal pads have a mild, slightly tart flavor and a crisp texture, similar to green beans or green peppers. They are often used in Mexican cuisine, where they can be grilled, sautéed, or boiled and added to dishes such as salads, tacos, or scrambled eggs. Nopal is rich in vitamins, minerals, and dietary fiber, making it a nutritious and versatile ingredient in cooking.
