Recipe by Happy Hippie
Our family, being the Mexican food lovers that we are, really enjoy these sopes and they're a nice change of pace. We use sopes that can be purchased ready-made at the grocery store or a Mexican food market, which is my preference. Living in San Diego, there's no shortage of Mexican food markets or Carnicerias. I confess that I've never attempted to make sopes from scratch. This recipe is very easy to make and if you like Mexican food, you gotta try these.
- 1⁄2 lb ground beef
- 1⁄4 cup mixed vegetables, frozen
- salt, to taste
- pepper, to taste
- garlic powder, to taste
- vegetable oil (for frying)
- 15 ounces refried beans
- 1⁄2 head cabbage, shredded
- 1 cup Cotija cheese, crumbled
- 1 tomatoes, sliced
- 1⁄2 cup sour cream
- 1⁄2 cup salsa
