I've mentioned it before, but in my house, tacos are THE beloved food. I get tired of the regular ole' crunchy taco shells with ground beef, though, so in order to keep everyone happy (including me!), I mix it up frequently.

This week, I spotted these sopes at our local grocery store. We used to eat them frequently, but I hadn't seen them in several years, so it was a treat to find them.

They are flat discs, sort of like fat tortillas, with a raised edge.

You pan fry them in a tiny bit of oil, until the edges are crisp and brown. Then, I topped with cheese. It would be good with beans, but my nursling hates beans, so I've sworn off them for a few months. But, if you have no nursling, try the beans.

On top of that, I added some carnita meat (just slow cooked pork butt, crisped in a cast iron skillet). But, they are versatile, just like tortillas. Add whatever you like.

And topped with tons of fresh pico de gallo. One of my favorite tastes of summer.

Only one thing left! Dig in! These were so good. If you see them in your grocery store (on the bread aisle, next to the tortillas), definitely try them.

I have never seen these but will be on the look-out now. I make homemade refried beans often and we always use tortillas or tostadas. Thanks for sharing!
