One of my favorite foods to enjoy is cactus. It’s very popular during the spring because during the time when one observes Lent, it’s a great meat substitute that is good for you and so full of flavor. This time, I decided to give the traditional ensalada de nopalitos (cactus salad), a hearty twist with Cacique® Pork Chorizo and serve it warm during these cold months. It makes a great side dish to main protein entrees as well as the perfect taco filling for a casual lunch. It’s also a great addition to any Dia de Muertos offerings you may be serving with traditional mole or Mexican rice.

If you prefer to keep this meal meatless, you don’t have to compromise the flavor. Simply replace Cacique® Pork Chorizo with Cacique® Soy Chorizo and serve it as vegetarian meal.
