Scrambled Eggs with Nopalitos

Scrambled eggs nopalitos


This is one of my husband’s favorite breakfast meals. My daughters and I didn’t care much for them until we started Keto. For some reason, now that we are eating Low Carb High Fat the food has better flavor for us and that includes this dish. Let me know if you try it or if you have a different way to prepare this, I would love to hear from you.

  1. So I may just be a cooking novice. What are Nopalitos? What is flavor and country of origin?

  2. Nopalitos is cactus and they’re from Mexico. They have a very small spicy taste maybe? It’s hard to describe actually lol
