Test Kitchen Tip: Nopales are the tear-shaped leaves of the Opuntia or prickly pear cactus, harvested all year long in warm, dry regions of Mexico. The pads are harvested young and have a delicate, tart flavour and crisp yet slightly chewy texture. The juicy leaves are eaten raw or cooked in a variety of Mexican dishes.
