Another taqueria favorite is nopales, or prickly cactus paddles.
There's a fancier upscale mexican joint in the Financial District, Tlaloc, that has a ton of nopales dishes on its menu. It's a little frou-frou for my taqueria tastes, but I also appreciate it when a place has them on the menu. (And Tlaloc had the genius idea to combine nopales AND chicken mole in one burrito! insane, I tell you. )
The nopales are the texture of roasted peppers, with a slightly more tangy flavor. Muy delicioso.
