Dont think this is a sope or even confuse it with a hurache and if you said taco or chalupa you are not even close. (start googling - now) Tlacoyo (pronounced tlaw - coy - yo) is in a class by itself and while these are typically served simply with crema and cotija they are even better with a little fresh salsa of jalapeno, cilantro, avocado, tomato and onion - according to me.
Corn masa. You can use blue corn, red corn, yellow corn or white corn its up to you and I dont care what anyone tells you I can taste subtle differences in each of the corns, some are sweeter some more earthy so in my book its more than just color.
Anyway, you make these similar to a pupusa, fat like a sope, shaped like a huarache and they are stuffed. Cheese, beans, guajes, chicharron you have some filling choices, these are stuffed with refried black beans.
Tlacoyo is ready when you are, if you want to break away from the tacos of everyday then this is the dish for you.
What is wrong with this picture? I will tell you - its the knife and fork - tlacoyos are meant to be eaten with your hands - I cheated because I didnt want to get any on my new shirt.
