Sopes are thick little tortilla boats garnished with cheese and salsa sold as street food in Mexico; north of the border, you’ll see them on appetizer menus in upscale Mexican restaurants. The chief difference between Mexican sopes (which are typically basted in lard) and this recipe is the use of Guatemalan-style tortillas: thick, hand-patted tortillas about four inches in diameter and dry-cooked on a griddle. Serve a single sope as an appetizer, or several as a full meal.
