Anyone have a good method for de-spining nopales?

I’ve just been scraping and peeling with a knife and sometimes a chisel. But I feel like there’s a better way.

We grow them in our backyard, but we’ve found it’s not worth the effort to despike them.

We buy them cleaned and chopped.

Last night’s dinner was cactus and eggs.

I wonder if I can burn them off.
