Pamper your family and friends with traditional ingredients full of flavor, such as these nopales with Clamato, excellent as an aperitif or to accompany your Lent dishes.
I like that my kids try new flavors and I try to prepare recipes by giving them a twist with some special ingredient.
As in this case, this recipe is very similar to the Mexican nopales, but it is served cold and with tomato cocktail Clamato The Original, which by the way my children like to take it only with ice.
We love these nopales and I'm sure my friends will also enjoy them at upcoming Lent meetings, when we get together to eat seasonal dishes.
The recipe is fresh and simple, perfect for these meetings, as it contains only vegetables and some spices with clam and tomato juice, which give it a very rich flavor.
I hope you enjoy it!
Recipe to prepare Nopales with Clamate
1 lb chopped Nopales
3 small tomatoes
1 1/2 Cup of Clamato Tomato Cocktail The Original
3 Lemons (juice)
2 cups water
6 sprigs of coriander
1/2 Purple or White Onion
1/2 Teaspoon oregano
1 Garlic tooth
1 teaspoon salt
Jalapeño chili (optional)
Tortilla chips or toast
Rinse the nopales in a colander, under the water jet and drain. Place in a pot with two cups of water, a clove of garlic and salt.
Let it cook for about ten minutes or until softened.
When the nopales are cooked, remove from the heat and pass through a colander, we can rinse with cold water. We put in the fridge and let it cool.
In the meantime, chop the onion, tomato, coriander and avocado, if you like spicy you can add jalapeño chili.
Remove the nopales from the refrigerator and mix with all the chopped vegetables, add the juice of 3 lemons, a cup of Clamato The Original tomato cocktail; season with oregano, pepper and salt to taste.
We serve the nopales with clamato immediately, as an appetizer with tortilla chips or toast.
I got all the ingredients from this recipe, at Walmart without any problem. The clamato The Original tomato cocktail can be found in the juice hall, it comes in different presentations, I bought the Clamato The Original 64 oz.
