*Fry sopes shells over a medium heat, in canola oil on each side for about 30 seconds each side. Allow to drain on paper towel and foil.

In a medium sized bowl, mix up your creamy pineapple corn sauce by combining: vegan mayo, crushed pineapple, fire roasted corn, diced red bell pepper and nutritional yeast. Place to the side.

Toss cubed sweet potatoes with olive oil and lightly season with garlic powder, salt and pepper.

Sauté sweet potatoes in a skillet over a medium heat until soft on the inside and crispy on the outside. Place to the side.


  1. Coat the inside of a cooked sopes shell with 1 tbsp of Homegirl’s Hummus Revolution Hummus
  2. Spoon in 1-2 teaspoons of cooked sweet potatoes.
  3. Top with desired amount of creamy pineapple corn sauce.
  4. Garnish 2-3 slices of avocado, 2-3 thinly sliced pieces of red onion and sprinkle with chopped cilantro.

*You can also coat sopes shells with olive oil and cook in a preheated oven or air fryer until golden brown.

* You can substitute the sopes with corn tortillas or tostadas
