An Introduction

A little history . . .


Nopales (Spanish for cactus also known as “prickly pear” cactus) is a type of fruit that is found predominantly in Latin America.

Nopales are one of the chief components of Mexican cuisine, popular for its vast health benefiting properties and loved by me because the cactus is an excellent source of dietary fiber, and its substances help in reducing LDL-cholesterol, body weight, and blood sugar levels. By replacing some of the corn flour with cactus flour, I am excited to bring you a delicious tortilla that naturally contains no wheat, no gluten, plus all of the additional benefits that the cactus can offer to our daily lifestyle.

Let’s get healthy with Marcela’s Cactus Tortillas! From my home to yours . . . Muchas gracias!
