Meal Ideas: Pupusas
Pupusas by Kittee Berns / Photography by Amy Gedgaudas
You can find the recipe for these over in our community recipe hub.
Take a golf ball sized piece of masa.
Insert your thumb and index finger...
and carefully form a pinch pot.
Fill with beans,
and top with cheese (if you want).
Grab a little more masa and flatten slightly.
Carefully begin pinching the two layers of dough together,
until the beans are
between the two layers of dough.
and even a little more.
Place the pupusa on a piece of parchment,
and flatten until...
the pupusa is about 1/3 inch thick.
Transfer each pupusa into a lightly oiled pan, and grill over medium/medium high heat until cooked through on both sides. Serve with salad, slaw or slathered in guacamole. I love them piping hot when the cheese is completely melted and gooey.
