There is so much over-generalization happening in this thread, that reading it is pointless.

That itself is a generalization. There are worthwhile posts.

And if you go to the mountains, it looks like this:






And if you go to Santa Fe just after sunset, from the balcony of a building on the Plaza it looks like this:








And if you go back to the desert, you can eat these, just be sure to peel them carefully as it has lots of needles:






And if you go to the Jemez pueblo you can buy Jemez enchiladas with red chile, cooked on a cedar firepit, and you can hear the vendors talking to eachother in Towa (one of the Indian languages):




I didn't go to the Navajo reservation this time, but if you go driving around there you'll see about half the residences are just shacks that don't have electricity.

Not nopales. The photos I showed - you eat the red fruit (after peeling). But you have to be careful detaching this fruit because it is covered with a bunch of tiny, hair-like needles. Then you peel it to get rid of those needles. Then you eat the inside raw which is a sweet fruit.

Nopales are a different cactus where, as you probably know, you slice the green leaf and cook it before eating it.

Nice, I'd like to try it. I had nopales a long time ago in California. I have only see them here sold in jars.

Nopal? They grow wild along railroad tracks in northern Indiana & Illinois, probably in Michigan too (the folklore is that migrant workers rode the railroads, & their meals sometimes included fresh nopal).

In Canada? Try the Mexican neighborhood grocery/restaurant combinations, if there are any. It keeps well, but fresh is better, & the better restaurants probably have a supplier somewhere. (Probably larger urban areas, I'm not sure where the Mexican descent neighborhoods are up there.)

°Provecho!

I believe after the Anglo-Saxon settler nationalists (who earlier defeated the Hispani Goth settler nationalists) put the Apache, Navajo & similar nomadic tribes on reservations, it was the descendants of the nomadic tribes of northern Mexico mentioned by the student of Blumenbach, Humboldt, who kept Mehico from becoming Anglico.

At least before globalisms (then called internationalism; basically the settlers & the descendants of them & their coloured concubines [if they existed at all in massah's plantation] said f*** you to the Euro metropols; not to be confused with Lenistas who acknowledged the nationality issue) & bourgeoise state centralization, consolidation.

One world; one massah; one holy & hallow plantation.
