Very good! I also used additional tomatillos and only used 1 jalapeno since I have a tendency to make things too hot for most tastes. I added about 1/4 C chicken broth and 1/4 t ground cumin. Serverd on tortillas with mex blend cheese and something new Rosa Rita green salsa verde which had just the right kick. Will make this again!
Good & easy recipe. As So. California residents my mother grows cactus aka Nopales in her yard & she harvests this "green meat" throughout the year. As kids we grew up on it. Thanks for sharing with my additions it was a hearty meal that got rave reviews. I served it corn tortillas a side of rice and limes. My edits: I added tablespoon of chicken bouillon garlic and a big chunky onion.
Not enough flavor for me. Definitely needed salt. I used fresh nopales (grown on our property) and they made the mixture pretty slimy. My Mexican husband told me when it was too late that I should have chopped them before boiling and the boiling would take the sliminess out. Maybe next time.
I understand that this is "con Nopales" but after having it I can't say that the cactus was really worth the mess and effort. I think a better substitute for the flavors in this would just be green peppers/pepper medley. Otherwise a fantastic recipe. I added some garlic powder a bunch of fresh cilantro and a 1/4 onion to the green sauce and the flavor was phenomenal. Will definitely make it again with the above adjustments.
Not bad. I used pre-cooked packaged chicken slices and added a dash of garlic powder 2 tbsp lime juice and 2 tbsp of dried cilantro leaves. I didn't shred my chicken just a personal preference. Thanks Chef Kiki.
This is absolutely amazing!! Unlike the white people on here who want to on this recipe and change it "ooh I didn't use cactus ewww gross blah blah I used bell peppers blah blah" it's called CON NOPALES for a reason!!! Once you take away the nopales and substitute bell peppers all it is now is like santa fe chicken BORING.. Follow this recipe and you'll be pleased!! Trust me growing up Hispanic nopales was a staple in our house so good!!
made with chicken breast chunks did not shred added black beans with the cactus and some onion cumin and a dash of chicken boullion put on tortillas and used tomatillo salsa as a topping with some grated cheese YUMMY!
