Olive oil Cactus pads Onion Jalapeño Eggs Salt Cilantro for garnish

Slice the cactus pads


Cut off the end section off, then slice lengthwise, and lastly dice the cactus.

Cook the sliced cactus


Heat olive oil in a large skillet, add the diced cactus, and cook for 3 minutes, or until the cactus has turned a dark olive green color. Add the onion and jalapeño. Cook for 1 minute.

Add whisked eggs


Whisk the eggs in a separate bowl, add them to the pan, and add salt. With your spatula, stir until the eggs are cooked.

Top with cilantro


Serve it with avocado and queso fresco as I did. You can top it with Mexican red salsa and enjoy!
