Mexican with Claudia – Sopes


serves 6

INGREDIENTS: Tbsp : Tablespoon  Ts : Teaspoon

1-1/2 cups masa harina *by

1 tablespoon salt

2 cups warm water (if possible boiling), or as needed

1 quart oil for frying (I use sunflower oil)



  • 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.
  • Heat oil to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C) in a deep-fryer or large saucepan.
  • 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.
