Did you know you can make sopes using Sonora Keto Tortilla Mix? Sopes are open-faced masa shells filled with your favorite seasoned protein -- similar to a tostada but with a thicker, softer shell. Fill with savory beef, lamb, pork, chicken or even keto-friendly black soy beans to make a filling and deliciously low-carb meal!
- 1 bag Sonora Keto Tortilla mix
- 1 tablespoon lard or olive oil
- 1 cup water
- 1 tbsp. olive oil
- 1/2 yellow onion, sliced
- Kosher salt, to taste
- Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
- 1 cup crumbled Queso Fresco
- 1 teaspoon chile powder
- 1 lb ground lamb
- ½ cup cilantro
- 1 diced tomato
- 2 cups shredded lettuce
Combine Sonora Keto Tortilla mix with 1 cup warm water, 1 tablespoon melted lard or olive and mix well.
Wrap tortilla dough in plastic and chill in refrigerator for 1 hour.
Remove dough from fridge and form eight balls. Then flatten the dough balls until approximately 1/4" thick. Form 1/2" walls around the edges to form cups.
In a skillet on medium high, lightly toast the bottom side of the sope shell until slightly golden. This will help hold the dough together when frying.
In a pan with approximately 1" of safflower oil at 380°F, fry each sope shell. Fry one side until golden, then flip and cook the other side until golden. Set aside on paper towels.
In a skillet over medium-high heat with olive oil, cook the ground lamb with the onion, chile powder, salt and pepper. Drain lamb meat after cooked.
Fill each cup with the lamb mixture, topping with queso fresco, tomato, cilantro and lettuce. Provecho!
