If I could pick one cuisine to have at breakfast or brunch it would be Mexican cuisine. I love Mexican breakfasts/brunches. Huevos rancheros, chilaquiles, pork chile verde breakfast burritos, breakfast tacos, anything churro etc. Huevos Rancheros are possibly my most favorite breakfast dish. It is really a simple dish, one that can be customized easily to anything you want, such as grilled nopales in place of tortillas. Some recipes add beans, some add pico de gallo in place of the ranchero sauce, some add chorizo or even potatoes. Really very customizable and you can’t go wrong with any version. I prefer the traditional version of tortilla, or in this instance grilled nopales, sunny side up egg, ranchero sauce and toppings of cotija cheese, lime, cilantro and avocado.

Nopales can be found in any well stocked grocery store or specialty Mexican grocery. We are fortunate here in Las Vegas to have many Mexican grocery stores to shop at. We have one store that is so big they have a restaurant inside the store as well as bakery, butcher and my kids favorite to watch, the tortilla and chip making section. We love watching the machines that make the chips after the store workers make the tortillas and cut them. If we stand there long enough watching someone always walks over with some chip samples. My kids especially love the cinnamon sugar covered ones. Then again, who doesn’t?

When you look for the nopales look for ones that have already been prepped, the cactus spines have been removed so you don’t have to do it yourself. It can be a bit time consuming, using a paring knife to cut a small circle around the spines is best, and you don’t risk getting a finger or two poked by the spines. OUCH. You will often find the pre-prepped nopales in bags or 6-8 paddles per bag, or loose un-prepped. If you can’t find the paddles with the spines already removed just plan on a bit more prep time to remove them.  I love getting in extra veg into my meals when I can and as much as I adore tortillas in Huevos Rancheros, grilled nopales for these huevos rancheros is a great variation to keep it lower in carbs but still just as delicious.
