Stuffed Sopapillas

  • Author: Emily
  • Total Time: 55 minutes


Freshly fried sopapillas are stuffed with southwestern chicken and smothered in Hatch chile sauce. Garnishes include queso fresco and shredded cabbage.


Units Scale
  • 12 cups of Hatch red chile sauce (from The Hatch Chile Store or homemade)
  • 12 cups of creamy Salsa Chicken (or other filling of choice)
  • One batch of freshly fried sopapillas
  • shredded cabbage, crumbled queso fresco, sour cream to garnish


  1. Cut one end of each sopapilla and spoon in Soutwestern chicken filling.
  2. Plate one or two stuffed sopapillas and drizzle (or pour!) red chile sauce over the top.
  3. Sprinkle garnishes on top and serve immediately.


To help ensure the entire batch of sopapillas stay warm, set your oven to the ‘warm’ setting and place freshly fried sopapillas into a paper towel-lined bowl in the oven.
