 Notes:  This unusual salsa calls for canned or bottled nopalitos, the stems of 
 the prickly pear cactus. Available in the Mexican section of many supermarkets,
  they're sometimes labeled natural tender cactus. If you cannot find nopalitos 
 at your local market, simply substitute cooked green beans. Use this tasty sals
 a as you would any other--with meats, chips and tacos.
