Tortas de Camaron
This is another recipe from my mother-in-law. She likes to serve this during Lent. It is shrimp patties fried and smothered in sauce and nopales. You may serve this with rice and tortillas (also some like to top it with cilantro), or I just eat it like a soup!

Pollo con Nopales (Chicken and Cactus)
