Sopes

The very first class I taught at the Mexican Cultural Institute, after I switched from being a policy analyst at the Inter American Dialogue, was October 18, 2007.

I remember the date exactly, because it was a day after Sami’s 6th birthday. For months, I had been teaching him and his two brothers, Alan who was then 8 and Juju who was just 1, how to make sopes every night for at least 3 months.

I had been so nervous about teaching in front of a live audience that, instead of telling them our usual bed time story about an imaginary and mischievous monkey called Waba-Waba, I had switched to a nightly cooking demo. They were as loving and kind and patient as they are with me to this day, did not complain, and pretended to be making sopes along with me.

I started the classes at the Institute in an attempt to share my love for Mexican cuisine and culture and to try to open a much wider window into its richness, diversity and surprising accessibility. I wanted to help break misconceptions about our food and our people and invite people north of the border to make use of our ingredients, techniques and recipes to enrich their own kitchens.

The very first dish that I shared was sopes. I even found a photo of that day… and you can see Rosa and I showing how to make sopes many ways, with our hands, using a rolling pin, with a tortilla press…

Pati and Rosa making sopes at the Mexican Cultural Institute

Why did I choose sopes? To begin with, because they are one of my favorite things to eat! But also, because sopes helped me shine a light on so many crucial elements of Mexican cuisine…

Sopes are part of a category of dishes we Mexicans call antojos, or antojitos, which translates to little cravings. An antojo is something you can eat anytime of day and can either be a quick bite or make a full meal, depending on what you top them with… and how many you eat.

Sopes are made of corn masa, which is a cornerstone of Mexican cuisine that has existed for thousands of years. Made of nixtamalized corn, corn masa renders corn nutritious and versatile. You don’t need to nixtamalize corn yourself, you can buy masa harina, which simply mixed with water makes masa!

Sopes show how playful and versatile masa can be. They are similar to a tortilla, but they are much thicker, and the rim around it that helps contain its garnishes. They are like little edible plates.

Sopes are easy to make. Different from a corn tortilla, someone who is making sopes for the first time, doesn’t need to worry about knowing how to use a tortilla press, the correct thickness, or the technique for making them puff up. They are much more forgiving.

Sopes are also accessible: you can make them ahead of time, vary the toppings, assemble in a few minutes, dress them up or dress them down. I always, always, add a layer of refried beans, a tasty salsa and either tangy, salty and crumbly queso cotija or queso fresco, crumbled on top.

To boot, sopes are super fun to make by yourself or with friends or with your kids.

So as you can see, sopes helped me achieve many things: they helped me show how accessible, forgiving, fun, filling, nutritious, versatile, rich and delicious Mexican food is.

To this day, I am still proudly teaching at the Institute where I am the resident chef 11 years after I started. I am also serving sopes any chance I get.

Ingredients

To make the Sopes:

  • 2 cups masa harina or corn tortilla flour such as Maseca
  • 2 cups water more if needed
  • Pinch kosher or coarse sea salt

To serve:

To Prepare

  • Heat a comal or skillet over medium heat until very hot.

To make the sopes:

  • Combine the masa harina, water and salt, kneading in a revolving motion with your hands. Knead for a couple of minutes, until dough is smooth and has no lumps. If it feels too dry, add a bit more water.
  • Divide the dough into 12 balls, each about 2-inches in diameter. Line the bottom of a tortilla press with circles cut from a thin plastic bag (like the ones from the produce section of your grocery store). One at a time, place a ball of dough onto the plastic lining the bottom of the tortilla press, and top with another layer of plastic. Press down to make a flat disk as thick as a pancake, about 1/4-inch thick (much thicker than a tortilla). You can also flatten and form them by hand. Repeat with all 12 balls.
  • As you make them, place each sope on the hot comal or skillet. Let them cook about one to two minutes on each side, until opaque and speckled, and they can be flipped without sticking.
  • Take them off the comal and place them on a chopping board. Using a kitchen towel to protect your fingers, make a rim around each sope by pressing and pinching with your fingers along the edges. Return them to the comal or skillet, and let them cook for one or two more minutes per side, until thoroughly cooked.
  • If eaten the same day, they may be kept wrapped in a clean kitchen towel. If not, wrap them in a kitchen towel or paper towel, and store inside a closed plastic bag in the refrigerator. They will keep for up to 3 days, afterwards they will turn too hard. Reheat on hot comal or skillet for a couple minutes before eating. They can also be frozen and kept for months.

To serve:

  • Once the sopes have been thoroughly cooked and warmed, place on a platter and add a generous tablespoon of refried beans, shredded lettuce, crumbled cheese, chopped onion and Quick Roasted Salsita. Salsa may be left on the side for people to add as much as they like.

    i have been chasing the perfect sopes for years, trying to match the taste i experienced as a young boy. my parents used to take me and my siblings to a local taqueria every Sunday evening for dinner. The sopes were my favorite. Over the years i have tried sopes up and down the State of California unable to find my ‘perfect sopes’. i am going to try your recipe and hopefully I’ll find the taste i loved as a youth. Love your show!!!

    Hi Patti
    I have been watching your show on Foxtel here in Adelaide South Australia. I have your books and made some of your dishes for the my family, they loved it. Thank you for teaching me about Mexican cuisine . I am very much a keen learner and have just found where I can buy authentic Mexican ingredients in Adelaide to cook on a regular basis . Thank you.

      Hi Rosa, masa harina for arepas is completely different from the corn masa that you use to make tortillas, sopes, etc. You need to look for masa harina for tortillas or for Maseca. Good luck!

    We love these sopes! I made these tonight in celebration of my wife’s one year anniversary of taking Spanish. Friggin delicious! There’s also an ice storm raging here in Iowa, so a taste of a warmer climate was welcome.

    Thank you, Pati, for your glorious recipes, amazing show, and for sharing the rich history so deeply embedded in Mexican cuisine.

    And thank you for teaching me the proper way to cook black beans. I’ve got five quarts of them cooling in the kitchen. That should be enough to get us through this storm. Maybe.

    I made your sopes, and everything came out fantastic, except the tortillas. I followed the recipe, but when I put the dough in the tortilla press (with round parchment paper on both sides), it would stick to the paper. I tried more and less water, but never had success. The dough would also stick to my fingers. I tried three nights in a row. I’ll keep trying though!, the recipe is so great. BTW, I used an InstantPot to cook beef tinga to add to the dish, which came out great.

    I found item so easy to make. Followed the recipe not changing a thing. The grandkids loved them and now I have them helping me and they want them every weekend. I have made so many of Pati’s recipes and will continue to try many more. I loved your Cinco DE MAYO SHOW on Channel 13,3 KERA in the Dallas Fort Worth area. I watch your show daily. I look forward to making even more of your recipes and visiting with you on your travels through Mexico and Mexican Quisine.

    Hola Patti.
    i am writing to you to let you know how much i love your show. I watch Patti’s Mexican Table every morning on wgbx channel 16 Out of the Boston area. It is such a great way that i start my day. I am so inspired when you travel to Mexicir o. I watched every episode of your trip on the baja Peninsula. I can’t wait to go there. I have eaten sopes and they are one of my favorite foods they are so delicious and pretty to eat. I used to live in the east Boston area of the Boston area. My favorite restaurant in East Boston is Cancun it has the best sopes and they also have excellent sangria as well , actually all their food is good. They also have a sister restaurant ,I eat a very good
    Mexican style breakfast with eggs and chorizo with avocado, beans and fresh tortillas. There are quite a few Mexican and El Salvedorian cuisine Restaurant in East Boston an area i think you would love to explore. Thank you for showing me how awesome Mexico is.

    As soon as I saw this recipe I thought of my mother. You are the second person I know who knows of sopes. My mom fried the sopes instead. She topped them with chorizo refried beans, lettuce, queso blanco, and tomato. Oh! How it brings me back memories of my childhood. I can taste them right now.

    Hi Pati,
    I remember that some people dip the sopes in enchilada sauce and fry them. I also remember them putting the frijoles in a blender so they’re runny and pouring it on the sopes. Does that sound weird?

    1. Pati

      Jan 09

      Oh there are so many ways of cooking and making sopes…give them all a try, Sylvia, to find your favorite 🙂

    My favorite thing is antojos! I love little food because you can sample many dishes. I love throwing a party and serving many types of antojos. I think my new favorite is sopes. Love the simple recipe and I can add things like beef or chicken to change them up. Thanks for the recipe.

    My favorite Mexican food is SOPES!!! They bring me such good memories from my childhood! Growling up im Mwxico City was so much fun and delicious! You could find at least a “fritangas” stand in every colonia. Every birthday my mom asked us what we would like to eat! One of my sisters would ask for pozole, one of my brothers asked for costillas de puerco en salsa pasilla! But not me. I would always ask for SOPES!!!💖😋 Thank you for the recipe and bringing me such good memories!

    I’ve never eaten sopes before but your recipe looks delicious. My mom just turned 93 and her cooking days are behind her but I’ve always thought the most delicious thing in the world of hers was a tortilla fresh off the comal spread with melted butter. Throw in a bowl of her frijoles and I was in heaven!

    1. Pati

      Oh happy birthday to your mom, Cindy! And mmmmm a fresh tortilla with butter is YUM!

    The first time I had sopes in Mexico was in Barra de Navidad and they were filled with mashed potato and ground pork and had a super light tomato-y chicken-y broth poured over them. They were so delicious that I taught myself to make them when I got home.
    Did you try memelitas in Oaxaca? I learned to make those at the Seasons of My Heart cooking school. Those get a bit of lard and black beans. So good!!

    1. Pati

    I am a Native New Mexican, of Spanish descent. In NM, we are lucky to have a wonderful fusion of Spanish and Mexican influenced cuisine, along with various Anglo, German, African, and various other European and Central American cuisine to boot! I love our Chile, especially, fresh in the fall, and my favorite way to have it is ‘Christmas’- which we combine both red and green chiles into the same dish.
    My Favorite Mexican snack, is grilled corn, with Quest Fresco, fresh lime, and a bit of fresh pico de gallo !

    Hi Pati, I cannot wait to make the Sopes! Can you tell me which tortilla press you would recommend? I know nothing of these things (being an Irish Swede!), but watching the video, I think the tortilla press will come in handy when I’m making other flat-breads.

    My favorite Mexican antojo or snack is probably taquitos, but those sopes look delicious. I like refried beans, so I think I’d like this dish with not only the refried beans, but also the cheese and the crunchy romaine lettuce.

  268. Cindy Ward

    Jun 23

    I haven’t tried making your sopes, but the carnitas recipe is a regular favorite at our house!
    They are a great “bribe” to get my daughter and son-in-law to eat with us instead of going out to eat.
    They are also so quick and easy to make.
    I love your show and watch it every chance I get.
    You’re so energetic and fun to watch.

  277. Paulette McClure

    Jun 23

    It’s funny that these are called “Sopes” because where I am from here in Nogales AZ right on the border of Mexico we called them “gorditas”. My mom, use to make them for us and she would make them 2 ways, one exactly like your “sopes” and another way fried masa patties smothered in enchilada sauce with lettuce and cheese. I will definitely make your recipe. Love your shows and your travels in Mexico gives me inspiration of where to travel to. Thank u

    Hola Patty:

    I think we have been communicating for all the years since you have be on public tv. My wife and I love the show and you. I especially would like to comment on your words at the beginning of email. I believe you have accomplished all that you intended to do and more. You not only a fine cook but I believe a great spokesman for the Mexican people.

    It is beyond my understanding how there is anyone that doesn’t love the Mexican people. We have bee coming to Mexico since our high school year and are no 83. We have enjoy the Mexican culture and our home is full of things from Mexico and when I return to Oregon from my final years my plans include some very special Mexican furniture and shop made decorations.

    Love the show and wish you nothing but continued success.

    You Friend, In Christ,

    I loved this cuisine idea! I plan to introduce Sopes to 3 special kids, young ladies now who are dear neighbors. I will invite them to my home and have them participate in my kitchen on how to make them. Will also plan to have some go home with them to share with the parents. Nothing is more satisfying then to share my Mexican roots and culture with these young ladies. Our community while diverse tends to have stereotypes of what Mexican food is and many only relate to the Taco Bell menu. Wish me luck and hope to broaden horizons and most importantly have fun by sharing. Thank you Pati Jinich for sharing this and many other wonderful Mexican cuisine recipes and ideas! Hasta la proxima! Ida from Atlanta, Georgia.

    These sopes look yummy! We are Texans living in West Virginia and the only tasty Mexican food we can find is what I cook in my own home. Our favorite meal is tamales that I learned finally the secret to making them light and fluffy from you! Pati. Now if only I could find corn husks, we have to have them mailed to us.

Over the years we have regularly gone to your web site and copied the recipes we have seen you prepare . Thank you and I hope we will be able to follow you for many years to come.

    One of my favorite snacks are molletes. So simple yet delicious. I first ate them in Mexico City when a cousin introduced me to them at breakfast. The hardest thing now is finding the right bolillos to make them with. I made them for my kids when they were young and they loved them too.

    Well I am a truck driver and many of my co drivers are very surprised at the amount of cooking I do in my truck. I’ve even shared some tamales with them that came out of my truck. They absolutely loved them. Course you know these gringos they love everything from a Mexican kitchen right? I truthfully love your show and hope to meet you someday so you can show me more cooking technics that I can do in my truck.

    My favorite Mexican snack/meal is a Gordita. I love the bread wrap because it is soft and thicker than a tortilla or soft taco shell and I love that you can fill it with a lot of good healthy toppings.

    Pati:
    Thank you for the Sopes recipe and a Spanish name for this dish!

    When growing up in the 50’s and 60’s, my mama would make something very similar.
    She called them Mexican pizza’s! We used refried pinto beans instead of tomato sauce as our base and added whatever cheese she happen to have available. Mostly, it was shredded cheddar cheese. The additional toppings we put on top of our “pizza’s” included salsa con chile pequin, radishes, lettuce, sliced black olives and sour cream. They were so delicious!!

    My abuelita would watch in amazement as my mother transformed her traditional “gorditas” into this concoction for her hungry children. Sometimes abuelita would say, “Por que no lo haces tostadas? They were similar, but every bite of a Mexican Pizza would just melt in your mouth. No crunching sounds were heard when we devoured this treat.

    I grew up in orange county california and about 60 miles from mexico. I learned how to make mexican food from my friends parent’s who were from all over Mexico. I still enjoy cooking and thank you for your recipes.

    Pati,

    Is the salsa you put on the Sopes a tomatillo salsa or pepper salsa?
