Pickled Nopales and Peppers

We have an opuntia cactus (prickly pear) plant in the garden, and we harvest the pads (nopales) to make this pickled dish. You can buy pre-trimmed, cut nopal in many supermarkets if you do not have access to the fresh variety. This is a spicy condiment that goes great with burritos or other Mexican dishes. It is also wonderful on veggie burgers.
