Nopalitos is a dish made with diced no pales, the naturally flat stems, called pads, of prickly pear (Pontiac). They are sold fresh, bottled, or canned and less often dried. They have a light, slightly tart flavor, and a crisp, mucilaginous texture. Nopalitos are often eaten with eggs as a breakfast and in salads and soups as lunch and dinner meals. Nopalitos contain intergalactic gums which retard the absorption of their sugars by the digestive system and are thus considered to have a low glycemic index. They may help in the treatment of diabetes.

El estudio tuvo como objetivo analizar el mercado de la tuna, el nopalito y sus subproductos en la zona centro de Mexico, que comprende el Distrito Federal y los estados de Mexico, Hidalgo, Morelos y Puebla. La metodologia consistio en un analisis de la cadena de valor, la rentabilidad y competitividad y de la matriz FODA. La falta de una estrategia de mercadotecnia acorde con el tipo de productos, la baja demanda y la sobreoferta en pocos meses traen consigo que buena parte de la produccion se deseche o no se comercialice, por lo que la agroindustria procesadora de la tuna y el nopalito, asi como el mercado de Estados Unidos se presentan como las alternativas inmediatas a esta problematica."

New York Times Bestseller A visionary new master class in cooking that distills decades of professional experience into just four simple elements, from the woman declared “America’s next great cooking teacher” by Alice Waters. In the tradition of The Joy of Cooking and How to Cook Everything comes Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat, an ambitious new approach to cooking by a major new culinary voice. Chef and writer Samin Nosrat has taught everyone from professional chefs to middle school kids to author Michael Pollan to cook using her revolutionary, yet simple, philosophy. Master the use of just four elements—Salt, which enhances flavor; Fat, which delivers flavor and generates texture; Acid, which balances flavor; and Heat, which ultimately determines the texture of food—and anything you cook will be delicious. By explaining the hows and whys of good cooking, Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat will teach and inspire a new generation of cooks how to confidently make better decisions in the kitchen and cook delicious meals with any ingredients, anywhere, at any time. Echoing Samin’s own journey from culinary novice to award-winning chef, Salt, Fat Acid, Heat immediately bridges the gap between home and professional kitchens. With charming narrative, illustrated walkthroughs, and a lighthearted approach to kitchen science, Samin demystifies the four elements of good cooking for everyone. Refer to the canon of 100 essential recipes—and dozens of variations—to put the lessons into practice and make bright, balanced vinaigrettes, perfectly caramelized roast vegetables, tender braised meats, and light, flaky pastry doughs. Featuring 150 illustrations and infographics that reveal an atlas to the world of flavor by renowned illustrator Wendy MacNaughton, Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat will be your compass in the kitchen. Destined to be a classic, it just might be the last cookbook you’ll ever need. With a foreword by Michael Pollan.

This delightful book is filled with the distinctive regional recipes, family stories and dichos (sayings) that Gallego Thorpe grew up with. It contains recipes for the herbal remedios her grandmother used for healing, as well as more widely known foods such as tamales, enchiladas, and posole. It is a fascinating record of a way of life and a way of cooking that can enrich the historical and cultural awareness of all Americans.Sopa de ViejoOld Man's Soup6 flour tortillas, cut into 1 inch pieces1 large onion, diced2 cloves garlic, minced1/2 cup fresh roasted green chiles, cut into strips1 cup Monterrey Jack cheese1/2 qt. chicken broth1/2 qt. milk1 Tbsp. oilsalt to tasteHeat oil in a 2-quart pan. Add tortilla pieces and brown lightly, about 4 minutes. Add onion and garlic; cook 3 more minutes. Then add the chicken broth and milk, and cook over medium heat for 30 minutes. Add green chiles and cheese. Cook 3 more minutes. Serves 4 to 6. This was one of Abuelito’s favorite soups.Abuelito was a great storyteller, and he especially loved keeping us up with ghost stories on hot summer nights, when we kids were sleeping outside on cots. He told us about La Llorona (The Crying One), a woman whose children died in a fire when she left them alone to go to a party, and the story called “Dancing with the Devil at Elysean Groves,” about a girl who disobeyed her parents and went dancing, only to discover that her partner was the devil. There are a variety of versions of these stories. Abuelito kept us in anticipation for days, as he told little bits of Aladino y la Lamparita Maravillosa (Aladdin and the Magic Lamp) each night until it was finished.After I graduated from high school, my cousin Elaine, a friend, and I went to California to make our fortunes. We returned home after three months, flat broke, and willing to seek our fortunes in Tucson, instead. On the night of our return, Elaine and I decided to go to a local dance to catch up on everything we’d missed that summer. When we got home that night, Abuelito unlocked the door for us, and then hid around the corner with a sheet over his head to scare us, like he had done when we were kids. Later that night, he passed away, leaving us with sweet memories of the loving, tender man that he was.ReviewBOOKLIST, JULY 1999Other authors have documented the foods of America's Southwest, but none have so lovingly drawn the intimate connections between this kind of cooking and the society from which it springs. Thorpe and Engels have organized their recipes by seasons to show how the people, the land, and the food come together to bring life to the area's inhabitants. Their cuisine is a simple one, lacking the sophistication of cooking south of the border. For example, their mole sauce for chicken calls for just peanuts and chili powder instead of the long inventory of nuts, seeds, and chiles required in Oaxaca. Many of the recipes include a note on herbal medicine; others have short reflections on the recipe's significance in the family; still others conclude with an apothegm of local folk wisdom.—Mark Knoblauch
