“These are soooo good. When I don't want to go to the trouble of making the sopaipillas, we have the meat filling on hamburger buns. It is so simple and very tastey. We always use aerosol cheese in a can when we have it on bun with sliced onions and dill pickle slices.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a bowl, combine the flour, salt and baking powder. Stir in water milk and oil with a fork until a ball forms. On a lightly floured surface, knead dough gently for 2-3 minutes. Cover and let stand for 15 minutes. Divide into four portions; roll each into a 6-1/2-in. circle.
  2. In an electric skillet or deep-fat fryer, heat oil to 375°. Fry circles, one at a time, for 2-3 minutes on each side or until golden brown. Drain on paper towels.
  3. In a skillet, cook beef and onion until meat is no longer pink; drain. Stir in the soup, water, garlic powder and pepper. Simmer 10 minutes or until most of liquid is absorbed.
  4. In a saucepan, combine soup, broth, chilies and onion powder; cook for 10 minutes or until heated through.
  5. Cut a slit on one side of each sopaipilla; fill with 1/2 cup of meat mixture. Top with cheese. Serve with sauce.
