“Why would anybody eat cactus?“
Not everyone would, or will.
Nopal cactus is one of many plants of the preHispanic diet that Spanish conquistadores looked down upon as a food. Its nasty needles make it a challenge to harvest and to clean for sale.
Despite that, for many, it’s a staple food with nutritional benefits that are golden. And it’s delicious. Trust us!
