Sandra Gutierrez’s Potato & Chorizo Sopes with Tomatillo Salsa
These crispy, dainty masa cakes have pinched edges thick enough to hold a classic Mexican filling of finely diced potatoes and spicy sausage, called chorizo. Sopes can be filled with virtually anything. Popular toppings include beans, shredded beef or chicken, or sauteed vegetables. The tomatillo salsa is tart and refreshing; since its sour undertones lend a sharp contrast to the creaminess of cheese, it makes a perfect condiment for tacos, huaraches, tostadas and these sopes.
