So… what exactly is a “sope” you may be wondering? Well, here’s what wikipedia says:

A sope (pronounced “SOH-peh”)or gorditas is a traditional mexican dish which at first sight looks like an unusually thick tortilla with vegetables and meat toppings. The base is made from a circle of fried masa of ground maize soaked in lime (also used as the basis for tamales and tortillas) with pinched sides. This is then topped with refried beans and crumbled cheese, lettuce, onions, red or green sauce (salsa, made with chiles or tomatillos respectively), and acidified cream. Sometimes other ingredients (mostly meat) are also added to create different tastes and styles of sopes. Most sopes are roughly the size of a fist. You can read the full article here

There’s something missing though: sopes are delicious!!
