Cook nopales in boiling salted water until their color changes to dark green and they are soft. When they are done, rinse well to remove the sliminess (similar to okra). In a skillet, fry the onions with a little oil until they are transparent. Add the nopales and salt to taste and saute to blend the flavors. While they are sauteeing, put the chile and a little of the soaking water in the blender and puree. Add this puree to the nopales and stir to blend. Stir in cilantro just before serving. Serve on a platter with Tortas de Camaron on top.
