Prickly Pear Frozen Margarita
This margarita comes from Muy Bueno: Three Generations of Authentic Mexican Flavor by Yvette Marquez-Sharpnack, Veronica Gonzalez-Smith, and Evanglina Soza, courtesy of Hippocrene Books, Inc. The author of the recipe writes: Grandma had several nopales (cactus paddles) growing along the fence in her backyard in El Paso. Together we would pick the tunas (prickly pears) off the cactus, peel, and eat the sweet fruit. As a tribute to my Grandma – who loved her tunas and color de rosa (the color pink) – I dedicate this beautiful pink margarita in her honor.”

For the best flavor, choose small- to medium-sized beets that are firm. Just before cooking, wash beets gently so as not to pierce the skin, which would result in the loss of color and nutrients. Peel the beets after they are cooked and cooled. The skin comes off very easily. Nopales, or fresh cactus, is the fleshy, paddle-shaped stem of the prickly pear cactus. All varieties of prickly pear are edible, but it is best to look for a medium-sized variety that is relatively spineless (this is probably what you would get in the United States anyway). What we see growing in the southwestern part of the United States are generally thick-skinned, low-growing varieties that are not particularly tasty. Nopales are very common in Mexico and are beginning to have more of a presence in the States, as they are very healthy.

Nopales are the paddles of various species of prickly pear cacti. They are sold in Mexican markets and increasingly in supermarkets, either precleaned and diced or in the form of paddles (almost always with the spines already removed). To prepare paddles, cut off any nubby parts with a vegetable peeler or sharp paring knife, then rinse well and dice. It is not necessary to peel off the outer skin.

Nopales--fresh cactus paddles--taste like a cross between asparagus and broccoli.
