Directions

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Whisk masa harina and salt together; stir enough water into mixture until dough is smooth and holds together. Form dough into 2-inch balls. Flatten each ball to a 1/2-inch thick circle.
  2. Heat oil to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C) in a deep-fryer or large saucepan.
  3. Fry dough in the hot oil until sopes are just lightly browned, about 30 seconds per side. Remove sopes with tongs and place on a paper towel-lined plate; cool just until sopes can be handled. Pinch the edges of each sope together forming little 'boats'. Return to hot oil and fry until golden and cooked through, 1 to 2 minutes.

You will wonder how something so easy to make can taste so good. Prior to frying I cooked each sope on a griddle for 1 minute on each side. Working on the side that was heated first and pinched the edges of the sope up to form a lip approximately 1/2 inch (the masa is still hot so work quickly). Top with your favorite taco fillings.

Perfect amount of crispness on the sopes! The critical direction is to heat them on the griddle BEFORE frying...so much better than my other attempts to make this treat of a dinner. Thanks!
