1 16oz Del Real Foods® Beef Barbacoa (10 oz needed)
12 Mini Sopes
1 16oz Del Real Foods® Refried Beans, warm (1 cup needed)
2 cups Shredded Cabbage
¼ cup Mexican Crema or Sour Cream
1 cup of Del Real Foods® Salsa Molcajete Verde (¾ cup needed)
1/3 cup Crumbled Cotija Cheese
Remove any excess fat or sinew from the Beef Barbacoa. Heat in a pan over medium heat. Keep warm.
Place cooking oil in a large skillet to a 1” depth. Heat oil over medium high heat. The ideal frying temperature is 350°F.
Fry the sopes for about 1 minute per side or until golden. Remove with tongs, and allow to drain on a paper towel lined plate.
Spread 1 Tablespoon of Refried Beans over each sope. Drain off excess liquid from Beef Barbacoa and place one heaping Tablespoon on top of beans. Top with 2 Tablespoons lettuce, 1 teaspoon crema, followed by 1 Tablespoon Molcajete Verde Salsa and 1 teaspoon Queso Fresco. Repeat with remaining sopes. Serve immediately.
