So, today (and Friday) I snacked on this stew like thing my mom made with some trouts she caught. It is pretty much like the tomato-ey fish stew I have been imagining has become Amascut's favorite thing to order while in Milliways. Well, except for the cactus. It is surprisingly pretty yummy despite the cactus!

I have only seen pictures of such a fish stew and imagined it in Milliways, but then, without prompting from me, my mother makes it.

So, ingredients, I am guessing, are tomato soup, cubed potatoes (leave the skins on if they are thin!), sliced olives, chopped celery and carrots, sliced jalapeño, sliced nopal, and trout. My previous experiences with nopal haven't been that favorable. it is awfully slimy and uck. The canned variety you can buy in the store is especially slimy and uck. The sliminess is actually a part of some recipes that call for nopales, but I don't like it. We have two prickly pear cacti in our back yard so we don't have to buy it from the store, but being a cactus it is a bit hard to harvest and prepare. My mom still does it once in a while, though. But in this recipe the nopales didn't taste so... yuck?

If you aren't feeling adventurous or you can't obtain nopales (canned or otherwise), green beans are totally acceptable. If you feel like making it look Mexican, slice the green beans lengthwise.

You know, next time I play with Amascut ordering food IC'ly, I think I'll have her usual soup come with cactus in it instead of green beans. Then a bunch of "OMG YOU CAN EAT THIS?"
