    Preheat the oven to 400 degrees for the roasting of the poblano pepper. Rinse, de-stem, and rough chop the cilantro. Rinse and halve the tomatoes.

    Place the poblano pepper on a baking sheet. Place in the oven and roast for 15-10 minutes or until the skin of the pepper is charred. Place the pepper in a bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Let steam in the bowl for 5 minutes before removing the charred skin, stem, and seeds of the pepper. Slice into 1" strips.

    In a mixing bowl, combine the quinoa, masa, 1 cup of water, and 1 tsp. of salt. Mix together to combine. Form into four even disc-shaped patties.

  • Step 4 - Cook the Sopes

    Cook the Sopes

    Heat a large saute pan over medium heat. Place 2 tsp. of olive oil in the pan. When pan and oil are hot, add two sopes to the pan. Cook on each side for 3-4 minutes or until golden brown. Repeat for the other two sopes. When all four are cooked, place them on the baking sheet and cook for 8-10 minutes in the oven to make sure the quinoa is thoroughly cooked.

  • Step 5 - Cook the Beans and Pickle Onions

    Drain and rinse the black beans. Place in a medium sized pot with cilantro, and 1 tsp. olive oil. Cook for 5 minutes or until warm throughout. Smash half of the beans with a whisk to thicken. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper. Place the red onions in a mixing bowl along with the juice of the lime and a few pinches of salt. Mix together well so the onions are completley coated. Let sit for 5 minutes to allow to quick pickle.

  • Step 6 - Plate
