So since I knew that my hubby would have to study I thought I would prepare a treat. Actually, I had a craving for some Mexican food, which, to be specific, I wanted sopes. Now what are sopes you may ask? Well, Google helped me with a great definition:
Definitions of sopes on the Web:
•A sope (pronounced “SOH-peh“) is a traditional Mexican dish originating in the city of Culiacán, Si. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sopes
•Miniature fried corn-dough bowls filled with beans and sauce and topped with cheese. Many varieties can be found.
I remember my mom and grandmother making this at one point, but I mostly remember trying them at this great restaurant in Houston called 100% Taquito.
I proceeded to mix and match ingredients I remembered my family using and what this restaurant used. I think the result was delicious!!!
Now comes the assembling of the sopes. Take one corn pattie and layer with 1 tablespoon beans. Sprinkle 1 tablespoon fresh cheese and then add the tomatoes. The cabbage salad is the last thing to add.
In a small bowl, add the cabbage, 1 tsp salt, red onion, and lime juice.
