Nopales from a Jar -- What to Make?

fmogul | Jul 13, 200710:51 AM     10

In restaurants, I've mostly encoutered them chopped into salads, which I enjoy -- and can figure out on my own. Ditto for the scrambled eggs with nopales that one occasionally finds in breakfast tacos. Anyone got any interesting, creative, but not-too-fancy-shmancy ideas?

I just impulse-purchased my first jar of them, and they're pretty darned good straight up -- more or less the same as I've had in restaurants (doubts about which had led me to avoid buying my own).

Eager to try making something new and different and showing off for company!
