Air Fried Sopes

  • Author: Kevin Smiley
  • Yield: 6 sopes 1x



2 cups corn masa

1 1/2 cups water

2 lbs ground turkey

2 packets taco seasoning

1  – 15oz. can refried beans

1 cup lettuce shredded

6 cherry tomatoes; halved

2 avocados; diced (optional; high in points) but adds good fats

1/2 cup queso fresco; crumbled (optional) use a low-fat cheddar as a great substitute

salsa for topping


In a medium bowl, mix together corn masa and water. Add a little water at a time while mixing with your hands. The dough should not be sticky. More like a bread dough texture. Take a piece of the dough with water on your hands and make small circular patties. Then make the dough into a bowl shape.


To make the sopes, start by mixing together the masa elote and water in a bowl. Then, form the mixture into small patties. Next, heat up your air fryer to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Spray the sopes with cooking spray, and then place them in the air fryer basket. Cook for about 3-5 minutes, or until golden brown. Remove from air fryer and set on a plate.


Cook ground beef in a skillet until browned. Add in taco seasoning. Stir well. Heat beans in a microwave-safe bowl.


Take the sope and place some beans on it then ground beef. Top with lettuce, queso fresco, cherry tomatoes, avocado, and salsa.
