Expert Tips

To add more color to your sopes, substitute lettuce with 1 cup of red cabbage.

Substitute black beans with pinto beans.

Directions

  • 1 Fry the bacon in a medium skillet over medium-high heat until completely browned.
  • 2 Add the diced onion and sauté for 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Add the black beans and bean broth. Cook for 5 to 8 minutes or until mixture begins to boil.
  • 3 Mash the beans with a potato masher; season with salt to taste. Cook for another 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the beans thicken up a bit. Remove from heat.
  • 4 Heat vegetable oil in a deep skillet over high heat. Fry the sopes, 2 or 3 at a time, until golden.
  • 5 Transfer sopes to a plate lined with paper towels to drain excess oil. Repeat this step until all of the sopes are fried.
  • 6 To assemble the sopes, fill each sope with refried black beans. Sprinkle 2 tablespoons of the fresh cheese over the refried beans.
  • 7 Garnish with chopped lettuce and hot salsa.
  • 8 Serve 1 or 2 sopes per person, and enjoy!

If you like traditional Mexican foods such as tacos, tostadas, and huaraches, you’ll love sopes. Sopes are a typical Mexican dish consisting of a thick corn tortilla with a raised border for a delicious filling. Fillings for sopes range from shredded meat, beef or pork stews, to potatoes with chorizo or refried beans with cheese. Personally, I love sopes filled with beans and sprinkled with lots of Mexican fresh cheese topped with hot sauce.
