Fideo (Mexican Pasta)

What you need: 

6 nests fideo (angel hair pasta)
12 oz jar picante sauce (mild or medium)
1 cup julienned nopalitos (cactus) OR
12 oz jar pickled cactus drained and rinsed OR
(in a pinch) 2 julienned and blanched bell peppers

1 small can (4 oz?) diced green chiles

What you do: 

cook the pasta according to package directions. blanch cactus, if using fresh. drain beans and green chiles. toss all ingredients together.
this dish is best at room temperature, although it is good hot or cold also. I have given just the basic recipe; you can add all kinds of things, like corn, fresh tomatoes, cilantro, scallions, blanched chayote squash, etc.
