I have to say that sopes can take a while to make not because they are particularly difficult to make but because most North-american kitchens are not equipped with the basic, and delicious, ingredients used in them.


  • Check comments bellow
  • corn dough
  • refried beans
  • chorizo sausage
  • lettuce
  • cabbage
  • radishes
  • cream
  • tomatillo sauce
  • tomato sauce
  • etc.


Shape the dough into small boats (like an upturned pop cap) about 4" in diameter. spreat a bit of beans on each boat. cook the chorizo by taking out of sausage case and frying it. place on boats. top with other ingredients.

very fatty. Hi, I do not have a recipe for sopes but can provide some help of where to find how to make them. First of all let me tell you "Sopes" are not "Soup". Sopes are categorized as "Antojitos" or "little cravings" and are delicious memebers of the family of Mexican food which are based on a corn dough "shell" upon which a number of different things can be added. The dough is first shaped like a small boat and then deep fried; this is let cool for a few seconds and then a stroke of refried beans is added on it. The rest is up to you: you may use chorizo sausage, chicken, and even lobster. All is topped with finelly chopped lettuce and/or fresh cabagge, sliced radishes, maybe sliced jalapenos, and a spoonfull of fresh cream. The whole thing is bathed in tomatoe or tomatillo sauce. I hope this can help you in your search. I know that there are recipes in english for Sopes but can not remember where right now. I will do a bit of searching and get back to you.
