Sopes are a great snack!

This is a shell which can hold lots of stuff.   Carnitas,  goat cheese and arugula, chicken and tomatillo salsa….


  • 2 cups masa harina
  • 1 1/4 cup cold water
  • 1/8th tsp kosher salt


  1. Mix masa, water, and salt until dough forms.  May require more or less water depending on conditions, i’d start with a cup and go from there.  If it’s too loose add for masa
  2. Let this sit for a while (maybe an hour) while you do other stuff
  3. Subdivide into balls.  I like my sopes to be bite size, you may like them bigger.  Bite size is ~20
  4. Meanwhile, heat 1 inch of oil in a dutch oven to 375
  5. Flatten them with the back of something flat (like a flat plate)
  6. Use your hands to pull up the edges so you have a little tiny deep dish pizza looking vessel
  7. Fry them a couple minutes, flipping once, until lightly golden
  8. Drain, top with stuff,eat


You can make these ahead of time and reheat with a quick trip to a griddle.
