Pupusas!!

Processed with VSCOcam

What’s more delicious than cheese? Well nothing really. Pupusas come pretty close though. I made these pupusas with some friends and we filled them with just cheese but they are traditionally filled with beans, cheese and/or pork.

Processed with VSCOcamThe dough for the pupusas are made with masa harina or a masa corn flour and are gluten free!

Mix 4 cups of the flour with 2 cups of very warm water. The dough should feel a bit sticky and able to form a ball when rolled.

The dough can be formed into a bowl. This will provide a nice big area for the filling. Make sure you don’t make the dough too thin.

Carefully fold the sides of the dough in and form a ball.

Gently flatten the ball into a flat pancake. You may have to repair any rips with a bit more masa dough. Stack the pupusas for cooking. Cover with a damp cloth or plastic wrap if you are worried about them drying out.

To cook them, fry them with some butter and oil until both sides are brown.
