Ingredients

  • 2 cups masa harina
  • 1 1/3 cups warm water
  • 1 Knorr® Cilantro MiniCube(s), crumbled
  • 1 box (10 oz.) frozen whole kernel corn, thawed and drained
  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 zucchini, chopped
  • 4 ounces chorizo sausage, finely chopped
  • 8 ounces shredded cooked chicken (about 2 cups)
  • 1 jar (1 lb. 8 oz.) pasta sauce
  • 2 Tbsp. chopped fresh cilantro
  • 4 ounces crumbled queso fresco

Directions

  1. Combine masa harina, water and Knorr® Cilantro MiniCube; set aside.
  2. In 12-inch nonstick skillet, cook corn until golden brown, about 8 minutes; remove corn and set aside.
  3. In same skillet, heat olive oil and cook zucchini until tender, about 4 minutes. Stir in chorizo and cook until browned. Stir in corn and chicken; cook 2 minutes. Stir in sauce and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer 5 minutes or until sauce thickens. Stir in cilantro; keep warm.
  4. Roll masa mixture into 16 balls, then cover with plastic wrap.
  5. Shape balls into 3-1/2-inch discs, a few at a time. In another skillet, heat a small amount of oil, if desired, and cook discs over medium heat 1 minute on each side. Remove from skillet; cool slightly. With fingers, pinch up edge of sope to make rim. Return to skillet and cook 2 minutes or until dough is firm and cooked through; keep warm. Repeat with remaining dough.
  6. To serve, top sopes with Sauce mixture, then top with queso fresco. Garnish, if desired, with additional cilantro.

TIP: Filling can be used as a pizza topping OR in burritos OR served with tortilla scoops.
