Sope

A sope is a traditional Mexican dish originating in the central and southern parts of Mexico, where it was sometimes first known as pellizcadas. It is an antojito which at first sight looks like an unusually thick tortilla with vegetables and meat toppings.

The base is made from a circle of fried masa of ground maize soaked in lime with pinched sides. This is then topped with refried beans and crumbled cheese, lettuce, onions, red or green sauce, and acidified cream. Sometimes other ingredients are also added to create different tastes and styles of sopes.
