- 3 cups masa harina
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 2 1/4 cups warm water
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- Oil for frying
Make small balls out of the dough. 1-inch for small (think large marble,) 2-inch for regular size (think walnut,) 3-inch for large sopes (think golf ball.)
Press each ball by hand to about 1/2 inch thick. Or sandwich a ball between two pieces of parchment paper and press with a plate. Or you can roll the dough out to 1/2 inch thick and cut out with cookie or biscuit cutters.
Find a glass, or an object with a smaller diameter than the dough patties. The idea is to press the object into the sopes dough to flatten the center more while creating a raised edge. Do this through the parchment paper to prevent sticking.
Fry in a 1/4 inch of hot oil on both sides until lighlty golden brown and cooked through.
Top and serve immediately. Here are some Topping Ideas
