Chile Verde Pulled Pork Sopes

A piece of grilled skirt steak being held over a cutting board intact still.

Let's chat about a tasty dish Antonio at @backyardeats (IG) whipped up recently—Chile Verde Pulled Pork Sopes. If you're not familiar with sopes, they're a fantastic staple in Mexican cuisine. Imagine small, thick rounds of masa (corn dough) that are pinched around the edges to create a little wall. This edge holds all the toppings. They're typically fried to a nice crispness on the outside but stay soft and warm inside. You can top them with pretty much anything, making them perfect for a casual meal with friends or family.

Antonio had some leftover pulled pork and thought, why not make it exciting? He seasoned it with Spanglish Asadero's Hatch Chile Verde and added a bit of tomatillo salsa for that extra zing. This combo really brought the pork back to life—so flavorful!

To assemble the sopes, he started with a layer of refried beans directly on the crispy masa base. Then came the juicy, seasoned pulled pork. He topped that off with some shredded lettuce for crunch, crumbled queso fresco for a touch of creaminess, and a drizzle of Mexican crema to tie it all together. It's a simple dish but so satisfying and packed with flavors that just meld wonderfully.

It’s a great way to use up leftovers and still make a meal feel special. Plus, it’s always fun to build your own, adding as much or as little of each topping as you like. Next time you have some spare pulled pork, give it a try with some zesty seasoning and fresh toppings. It's a chill way to enjoy a bite of Mexican tradition right at home.
