Nopal Tacos With Avocado!

Prickly pear cactus, more commonly known in Mexico as nopal, is a true oasis of nutrition. This desert-loving plant offers a full range of amino acids and is loaded with potassium, magnesium, vitamin C and antioxidants. If eaten before a party night, nopal can even help prevent a hangover!

Nopal has become a staple in my Mexican kitchen. I use it in stir-frys, green smoothies, juices, salads and tacos! Check out this yummy recipe for nopal tacos.


  • 1 cup chopped or diced nopales
  • 1/2 purple onion, chopped or thinly sliced
  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil or coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup cooked black beans
  • Sliced avocado
  • Sea salt and pepper to taste
  • 5 — 6 sprouted grain tortillas
  • Fresh cilantro


Heat the oil over medium high heat. Add the onion and sauté for a couple of minutes. Add the nopales. Add sea salt and pepper and cook for approximately 5 minutes.

Spread veggie mixture onto heated tortillas. Top with avocado and beans.

Add salsa and cilantro for some additional kick.
