Instructions for Sopes Three Ways

Tortilla Base:
Combine masa harina and water in a medium bowl and knead to combine.Add additional water 1 tablespoon at a time until mixture comes together.Divide masa into 2-inch balls and press with a plastic-lined tortilla press or rolling pin into 1/2-inch thick disks.Transfer to a parchment-lined baking sheet.

Brush a griddle or comal with soybean oil and cook sope shells on one side,about 1 minute.Turn and repeat.Transfer to toweling and cover with a kitchen towel.Allow to cool for about 30 seconds.With your fingers,pinch the edges to form a"boat.""

Topping variations:

Refried Bean (Vegetarian) Topping:
Combine the oil,beans and their liquid,cumin and lime in a small saucepan over medium heat.Cook until warmed through,mashing the beans with a potato masher.Season with salt and pepper.Spread the beans on the sopes and top with the remaining ingredients.
