What Want You Recipes!

1 May

We at EWI are still accepting your recipes! You don’t have to be a master chef – just a food lover! If you have a delicious recipe that you’d like to share, e-mail it to emily@ewint.org.

As a special treat, we’re going to share a recipe for Tender Cactus Tostadas that was submitted by Claudia at Blog de Recetas. Looks delicioso!

Ingredients (makes 2 tostadas)

½ avocado, diced or Mexican Guacamole

2 slices of smoked turkey breast, diced (want to make it vegetarian? they still taste delicious with no turkey breast!)

Prepared tender cactus or nopalitos (I recommend nopalitos Doña Maria, you can get them at Whole Foods or at a Mexican grocery store)

Feta cheese or queso fresco crumbled

1 small bunch of scallions, finely chopped

Cherry tomatoes



Spread the guacamole or avocado on each tostada. On top of the avocado, place the smoked turkey breast and tender cactuses. Sprinkle a tablespoon of chopped scallions and crumbled feta cheese or queso fresco on top of each tostada, and garnish with cherry tomatoes. Also try with refried beans.

If you try these tostadas let me know if you liked them!
