*Re-fried Black Beans*
(Using the black bean recipe above)
1.- Place a medium sized skillet on medium heat with 2 Tbsp of olive oil.
2.- Add 2 cups of the cooked black beans including 1/4 cup of water from the beans. Saute in the Olive oil.
3.- Use a hand blender and "blend" all the beans in the skillet, this will turn them into some sort of "paste".
4.- The beans are ready! set them aside for a couple of minutes.
NOTE: As per the rest of the cooked beans you can place them in separate containers and freeze for future use!
*Chicken for the Sopes*
1.- Boil in 2 cups of water the boneless/skinless chicken breast.
2.- After the chicken breast is thoroughly cooked, place the chicken breast on a plate to cool down a bit -for about 10 minutes-.
3.- Take the chicken breast and shred into thin strips. Meanwhile on a large skillet at medium heat add 2 tbsp of olive oil with 1/4 tsp of minced garlic, chopped onion and chopped tomato. Add shredded chicken and black pepper.
4.- Saute for about 5 - 8 minutes. Then set aside.
2.- Place each sope on the skillet and cook on each side for about 3 minutes with a lid on.
3.- Place each sope on a paper towel (to remove excess oil), then place onto plate.
*Assembling the Sopes*
1.- Take 1 sope and spread 2 Tbsp of refried black beans on it.
2.- Place 2 Tbsp of Chicken on the refried beans.
3.- Add 1 Tbsp of sour cream and top it off with hot sauce/salsa and sprinkle cotija cheese on top.
4.- ENJOY YOUR SOPES!
