Remember when I told you about the recipe feed I found for the green chicken tostadas? Well another non-English video, Sopes Hechos Con Harina De Maiz, found its way to my feed last week but this time without translation. Not understanding the language or the written instructions, a reliable English version had to be found post haste. It is a good thing Mexican food is my most favorite thing to make in the whole world otherwise I would have been lost. The typical American Mexican food blog/vlog did not have this recipe but luckily for me one of my go to Native Mexican blogs did! Tonight we feasted on Sopes.
None. Once the base is made the toppings list is endless. We used what was in the fridge: refried beans, taco meat, lettuce, cilantro, avocado, Queso Fresco, salsa.
Scaled for Likability: Great
In love. If these weren't so time consuming to make, they would be made weekly. Very similar to a pupusa in dough taste but with a wider options of flavors as it hold more than just one topping. The base is chewy and tender and filled with wonderful corn flavor. Fried to perfection, the dough is not oily, soggy, or crumbly. Filled with all the toppings you can pile on it, the base holds together. Pupusas are savory pockets topped with a crunchy vinegar slaw where as sopes are edible boats capsizing with toppings.
