Chicken Sopes

This week we continue with 2 super easy and tasty recipes, they are good as snacks or as a starter for a lunch or dinner. This recipes were made specially for the september special that was going to be published on Kena Cocina. It was the first time that I made those recipes and it was a little bit of trial and error,  because you know and new on Mexican recipes, the good thing is that they came out really tasty and I wanted to share them with you.

The first recipe are Chicken Sopecitos, let's say they are a Sopes but more on the light side, because the original recipe has lots of lard, so I made it low fat, they are thick tortillas, topped with beans, chicken, cheese and a lot of other ingredients, they are really tasty and above all, they are easy and quick to make, If you make some of the ingredients before hand, you can have antojitos in a snap of your fingers.
