Directions

  • 1 Pre-heat oven to 425 °F.
  • 2 Slightly grease a baking tray with vegetable oil. Place the 6 nopal leaves on the tray and season them with salt. Bake for 8-10 minutes. Turn the leaves, season with salt and bake for another 5-7 minutes, or until fully cooked.
  • 3 Meanwhile, fry the chorizo in a saucepan on medium-high heat until cooked through. Remove from heat.
  • 4 To assemble the huaraches, spread 3 tablespoons of refried beans on top of the baked nopal leaves. Spread 2-3 tablespoons of chorizo on top of the beans. Sprinkle cheese to taste. Bake for 5 minutes or until the cheese has melted completely.
  • 5 Serve with hot sauce or pico de gallo. Enjoy!

Nopales are one of the most popular staple Mexican ingredients. When I was a kid, nopales were a must in our family table. My grandpa used to include them in all his favorite dishes such as caldo de res, mole, chile colorado and even chorizo with eggs. I must confess, though, I didn’t really like nopales back then. Not a bit! It wasn’t until I moved to Mexico that I started liking them. They’re delicious! Huaraches are a typical Mexican dish, traditionally made with a base of long-shaped dough, in the form of a sandal–that’s in fact where it gets it name. Since nopales have a similar shape, they can also be used as a base to make this recipe. Nowadays, I prepare nopales almost every day for my family. My kids love this recipe, and you should try it out!
