Ingredients

How to make it

  • 1. In a 10-inch skillet, cook cactus pieces, pepper and onion in the butter until the onion is tender but not brown. See Photo
  • 2. In a bowl, beat the eggs, milk (beer), salt and pepper, jalapeno, cilantro and olives with a fork.
  • 3. Pour the egg mixture over the cactus pieces and onion in the skillet. Cook without stirring over low heat until the eggs start to set on the bottom and sides of the skillet.
  • 4. Lift and fold the eggs with a spatula so that the uncooked part runs to the bottom of the skillet. Continue lifting and folding about 5 minutes more or until the eggs are set and cooked through but still glossy and moist. Serve hot.
  • This is usually served with the ubiquitous tortillas & frijoles and a few strips of thick bacon or some carnitas and topped with some mild, chunky salsa or guacamole. See Photo

    It was nice to write this one down on that yellow tablet,and not leave it for memory to recover.

    A good breakfast change.

    Thank-you

    I love the idea of cooking with cactus. I purchased some prickly pear cactus syrup on a trip to Arizona, and I have used the syrup in several recipes. High 5!!!

    My mouth is watering thinking about your recipe with Apple cider juice. The last time I found a wild cactus plant with ripe fruit was in Ferndale Park in West Australia. I picked one off the branch and guess what? Adam made me do it - Ouch!!!
    Thanks for sharing. Cheerfully !!!!!5
