Sopitos, Chalupas, & Gorditas Wed, 01/26/05 5:23 PM (permalink)
What do these terms mean to you? We have a tremendous little place, Big Al's in Ashland, that combines Mexican dishes from the owner's native Michoacan with Hamburgers. The dish that interests me is called Sopitos by him. It's a raised corn tortilla slathered with beans, topped with shredded beef and Cotijo cheese. Wonderful stuff. I've had a similar item in San Antonio but it was called a Gordita.
In other places things made with Risen corn dough have been called Chalupas. Enlighten me. Have you tried these delicacies? What do you call them?
Are they the same dish or all cousins?...and how do I make the dough?
