Sopes - Tinga Pollo


  • Tinga de Pollo
  • Masa MaSeCa (found at any Mexican store)
  • Lettuce
  • Salsa verde and/or roja
  • Pico de gallo
  • Sour cream
  • Queso Fresco
  • Refried beans 

Make the tinga chicken first (refer to previous post for detailed information).

Prepare the masa (corn flour) by mixing Maseca and cold water.
The amount of water is based on how much Maseca you use. The dough should be soft and malleable.

You can make the sopes by hand  by making a ball of dough and patting it between your hands until flat.
Once the sope is formed, place in a hot flat pan. You may cook it with or without oil.

Add the tinga to the sopes.

Along with other ingredients.You can mix and match-the salsas, pico de gallo, queso, sour cream, lettuce, etc.

This one a long process! Start with the tamale flour and mix well.

Then wash the corn husks. Prepare your meat - tinga pollo - or your choice.

Wrap the meat in the corn flour batter.

Place in a steaming cooker - takes about an hour.

Ready to serve - with cabbage salsa!
