  vinaigrette.
  
  Toss spinach & watercress together in a large serving bowl.  Layer
  remaining salad ingredients & top with chiles.

  stir in the reserved oil that was used to cook the chiles.  Pour over
  prepared salad & serve.
  
  *Nopalitos are the green pads of the prickly pear cactus.  Found in
  Mexican or Spanish style supermarkets.  Well worth looking for, they
  also make a great side dish in their own right.
