Nopales Con Huevo Recipe

Sometimes you need a little something extra in your breakfast scramble — broccoli and cheddar just won't cut it. Pick up a few fresh, succulent cactus paddles, or nopales, at a Latin grocery and you might just discover your scrambled eggs' new favorite companion. They're juicy and flavorful, reminiscent of green peppers and asparagus.

Serve this classic Mexican breakfast with a roll spread with refried beans and a little sour cream for a hearty breakfast you won't find on the average brunch menu.
