Spicy Sopes with Chipotle Sauce Pork RoastI am a Mexican food lover.

It’s no wonder. I grew up in Phoenix Arizona, which has a large Latino population and many awesome Mexican and Latin food restaurants. And despite not being Latina my mom and I have been known to make tamales and want a full Mexican food spread for Christmas instead of the American standard of turkey or ham.

And then after college we moved to San Diego which boasts a whole other kind of Mexican cuisine with seafood.

There are pretty much taco shops and Mexican food restaurants on every corner where I live. So Latin style food is available any time you want it.

Oneof my favorite dishes from a local Mexican restaurant is sopes.

Sopes are basically a corn masa cup that you can fill with whatever fillings you like. I usually order the pork or beef.

I love sopes. They are thick and a little bit crispy and they just give a different taste and texture to similar fillings in a taco or burrito.

So, that is what I am making for you today with some wonderful, traditional La Morena Mexican food products you might be able to pick up at your local supermarket.

I chose to use their 13oz Chipotle in Adobo and 15oz La Morena Refried Beans (which were amazing, btw) for the Sopes. I made a really awesome (if I do say so myself) Chipotle marinated pork roast for the shredded meat and layered in the beans and meat with some yummy toppings.

If you like tacos or tostadas I think you will really enjoy Sopes for a change. They also turned out really pretty and would impress even the pickiest eater!
