Step 1

Using a mesh strainer, drain the cactus from the jar, then place the cactus strips on a cutting board and pat dry with a paper towel.

Step 2

In a shallow bowl, whisk the eggs and hot sauce together.

Step 3

In another shallow bowl, combine the taco seasoning and panko breadcrumbs.

Bread the cactus by first dipping it in the hot sauce and egg mixture, then dredging it through the seasoned breadcrumbs.

Once coated in the breadcrumbs, place the cactus strips on an oiled wire rack on top of a baking sheet.

Once all of the cactus is breaded, turn the broiler on to high.

Place avocados, lime juice and cilantro in a blender.

Blend until creamy.

If the sauce is too thick, add water, 1 tablespoon at a time, until it reaches your desired consistency.

Add 6-8 strips of crispy cactus to each tortilla.
