Here Are 9 Times You Wish You Could Find These People On Your Snapchat Map

Snapchat recently added this map feature to their app that allows you to see where your Snapchat friends are located. But these are the people we really wish we could locate…

Snapchat now has a map feature that allows you to locate your friends, but there are far more important people we’d like to see on the map instead.

Important people like… el elotero.

This would mean no more having to chase after him.

On hot days when you’re dehydrated and drenched in sweat, you know who would be nice to spot on your Snap Map? This guy:

YESSSSS.

We all have that one friend who always ends up drunk at the club, wanders off with strangers and doesn’t answer his or her phone. Snap Map would definitely come in handy.

If only this would also help me find Stephanie’s other shoe.

And once you finally locate your borrachita friend, the next person you’ll want to search for on your Snap Map is El Taquero.

There really isn’t a more important search at 3 a.m. (aside from Stephanie’s shoe) than el taquero when your late-night, drunk munchies are at their peak.

But your drunk friend isn’t the only person you lose in public places. It would also be nice if you could use Snap Map to locate your mom every time that you lose her at the store.

With this, you would no longer have to yell out your mom’s name throughout the store trying to find her.

You’d also avoid a ton of stress if your teeny tiny keys were on Snap Map.

This would be wayyyy better than flipping your room upside down trying to look for them.

Snap Map, it would be amazing if you could help prevent someone from getting lost, like primos, nieces or nephews while we’re babysitting them.

This way you’ll be able to relax on the couch and babysit the kids from your phone.

But younger primos, nieces and nephews aren’t the only trouble-makers who you need to keep track of. Having your novio on Snap Map would be ideal. ?

You could use this to locate every time he’s at a food spot to text him your order.

Snap Map could even help you avoid getting yelled at if it showed you your mom’s ETA.

And it’d work wonders with curfew.

Nopales, The OG Ancestral Food We’ve Been Eating Since Waaaay Before Plant Based Foods Became Trendy

Nopales, The OG Ancestral Food We’ve Been Eating Since Waaaay Before Plant Based Foods Became Trendy

I can literally talk food until my babas drip. Don’t judge. The comelón life chose me and I’m not mad at it. Because growing up Latino meant breakfast wasn’t always cereal, and dinner wasn’t always mac and cheese. I grew up con más sabor en mis platillos than most Americans. And, at the time, I didn’t even realize that many of the foods my family was trying to get me to eat were ancestral foods. From chocolate to cocoa and chia to nopalitos, I blame los ancestros for my obsession with food and all the glorious ingredients that have been passed down for generations.

My knees already feel weak, fam, because today I’m gonna be talking nopalitos. Ya me estoy chupando los dedos, thinking back to how I grew up with these babies always in the refri in that Nopalitos jar, ready to be thrown into a sauce or encima de una carne asada. It turns out this soul-feeding food is one of the OG ancestral foods that have been used by our people for thousands of years. Ahí les va un poco de historia:

The Mexica introduced the world to the “fruit of the Earth.”

In Náhuatl, the word for nopal translates to “fruit of the Earth.” I don’t know what the Náhuatl word for “bomb-delicioso” is, but in my opinion, that should also be the name for nopales. And the Aztecs must have felt this way too because one of the most famous cities in the Aztec Empire – Tenochtitlán, the empire’s religious center – was named “prickly pear on a rock.” Iconic.

According to legend, the city was built after an Azteca priest spotted an eagle perched on a nopal plant, carrying a snake in its mouth. The priest, obviously extremadamente blown away by this, ran back to his village just so he could gather everyone to check out this crazy eagle with a snake in its mouth. As they watched, the cactus beneath the eagle grew into an island – eventually becoming Tenochtitlán. I’ll give you 3 seconds to just process that. 1…2…3. Please take more time if you need it. The image of the eagle carrying a snake, its golden talons perched on a nopal growing from a rock, can now be found on the Mexican flag.

Today, we know that the Mexica were right to call nopales the plant of life.

In Mexico, it’s still common to place a handful of nopal flowers in a bath to help relax achy muscles. And nopales are becoming more popular than ever in beauty treatments to help fight aging. But, y’all are too beautiful to be needing them for that, so let’s talk about what’s important — eating them.

There are so many ways you can mix this iconic ingredient into your meals.

We should all be eating our green foods. Your tía, your abuela, your primo, everyone…except your ex. Your ex can eat basura. I said what I said. But, nopalitos are especially important. These tenacious desert plants can be eaten raw, sautéed, pickled, grilled – they’re even used as pizza toppings. Though for some people, nopales – with their spines and texture – can be intimidating. After cutting off the spines and edges, and cutting them into slices, they will bleed a clear slime. But boiling for 20 minutes will take care of that. Or make it even easier on yourself and avoid espinas by buying them all ready-to-go from the brand we all know and love, DOÑA MARIA® Nopalitos.

Check it out, I’m even gonna hook it up with that good-good, because if you’re looking for ways to enjoy your nopales, I got’chu with some starter links to recipes: Hibiscus and Nopal Tacos, Nopal Tostadas, Roasted Nopales con Mole, and Lentil Soup con Nopales.  One of my personal favorite ways to eat them is in a beautiful Cactus Salad, full of color and flavor. Trust. I rate these dishes 10 out of 10, guaranteed to make your babas drip, and when you eat this ensalada de nopalitos, you will remember even your ancestors were dripping babas over this waaay before it was cool to eat plant-based foods.

So let’s give the poderoso nopal the spotlight it deserves by adding it to our shopping lists more often.

Rich in history, mythology, and practical uses, the nopal’s enduring popularity is a testament to its versatility. It’s time to give this classic ingredient the respect it deserves and recognize just how chingon our ancestors are for making nopales fire before plantbase foods were even trending.

Next time you’re at the supermercado, do your ancestors proud and add nopales to your shopping cart by picking up a jar of DOÑA MARIA® Nopalitos. This easy-to-use food will definitely give you a major boost of pride in your roots. Viva los nopalitos bay-beh!
