Today I ate a "burrito" and it had something called nopales. Do you mean I've been eating cactusssssss?

thank you everybody! gracias!

yeah Nopales are the quintessential mexican food! euz won't let me lie!

@ dosron, yes! nopales are "Feigenkaktus" auf Deutsch and are very edible here a link auf Deutsch

@ jordi, yes yes jordi, comiste cactus, y muy bueno eh??? here a link for you in English :)

and yes in Mexico we use nopales for 'salads' and include them in dishes as vegetables... then the flower of the plant, called Tuna, we eat them as fruits, they are delicious!! and lately they are becoming very popular in Japan, since they have health benefits like lowering cholesterol, etc.

comer nopales es de lo mejor que hay para bajar los niveles de colesterol, para mejorar y proteger la flora intestinal y para reforzar las defensas de la piel.

The italian name is Fico d'India.

thanks for the italian name dosron
and step 2
you quietly sneak into your neighbors home, steal the tunas (carefully, they have spines!) and run as fast as you can home and eat them for breakfast
