Nopal ideas?

I recently got turned on to the seemingly great health benefits of Nopal, or Prickly Pear Cactus. Seems like it's a very healthy thing to consume. While I'm sure many do not have access to this, I happen to live near a Mexican market, where it is cheap. I've only been consuming it for four days and have only juiced it with carrots and celery. The cactus juice is very thick and slimey, think aloe vera gel, but it tastes ok. Anyone else cook with this? Good recipes? Thoughts?
