This is a rather unusual recipe that I came up with using the crockpot with outstanding results. You can serve this up alone, in taco shells, or soft tortillas...any way, the result is great! Nopalitos (cactus pieces) have a flavor that is all their own, but can be kind of like a mild artichoke flavor and if it is spiced in the jar, can have a little green chile taste. You can get the nopalitos in the Mexican section of your supermarket or any Mexican grocer.
