Ingredients

  • 1/2 pound nopales (washed and cut in to squares.)
  • 1 onions (cut in half)
  • 2 sprigs coriander
  • 4 chile pepper (Guajillo, seeded and soaked in boiling water until soft)
  • 5 tomatoes (cooked)
  • 1/2 onions
  • 1 garlic cloves
  • 2 tablespoons corn oil
  • 3 sprigs coriander
  • chicken stock
  • 1 pinch cumin
  • salt
  • 4 cups water
  • corn flour (optional)

Directions

  1. Place a casserole or pot on the stove, and add the nopal and water into it. Bring to a boil. Strain the nopal from the water. Clean the nopal completely.
  2. Throw the nopal in the pot again and fill the pot with more water.
  3. Add the onion and coriander and cook for 10 minutes.
  4. Strain the onion, coriander and nopal again and place the cooked ingredients in the pot.
  5. Pour the chicken stock into the pot, and let it cook on medium heat for 10 minutes.
  6. Grind or liquefy the tomatoes and chile peppers, using the water where the peppers were left to soak. Strain the mixture while allowing the fluids to pour into a pan.
  7. Cook the mixture with enough cooking oil for 3 minutes.
  8. Add this mixture to the pot along with water, chicken stock, cumin, and a pinch of salt.
  9. When the water begins to boil, cover the pot and let it cook under low heat for 15 minutes. If you would like the soup to have a thicker texture, you may add the corn flour.
