Nice concept, but I might need to perfect the technique, since they turned out rather dry. I looked up a Youtube video of someone making pupusas to see how it was done.
I cut the recipe to 1 cup of masa since I wanted to try it out first. I added water until the dough reaches a cookie dough consistancy. For the filling I used mexican white cheese for quesadilla, spinkle some salts. There are so many types to masa harina so I just picked out the one made with precooked white corn. It came out very close to the one I had at the resturant back in San Jose, Ca.
It's a great recipe just make sure you buy the right corn flour. I love MaSeCa. I like it with Pork and cheese filling. The pork filling is almost like pull pork and I add mozzarella cheese. I also make a sauce and cabbage to go with it. I will post my recipe soon..
My boyfriend is from El Salvador and we could never find a restaraunt that would serve Pupusas so I made them from this recipe and they were delicious!!
This recipe turned out perfectly. I used a mixture of jack cheese and cotija. Definitely worth making the curtido cabbage slaw to go along with this. Thanks for the good directions.
Pupusas are so great!! The main way to make these pupusas are with chicharron (fried pork) or queso (cheese). My favorites are revueltas (mixed - chicharron w/queso). In order to make the chicharron you have to boil cubes of pork w/fattening until the water evaporates & all your left with is its own oils, make it until nice & brown. In a meat grinder or food processor just grind the chicharron until fine. & that will be your mix. You can use mozarella chese to put in for the filling, either by itself or mixed with chicharron. ENJOY!
I love pupusas! I haven't had them in years and they're such a nice change of pace from everyday Latin American/Tex Mex fare. I'm going to serve them with the Salvadorean Clam Salsa I posted, i.e., ID#176087
Pupusas are wonderful! For those of you who have not tried them, do so now! You can even put thin layers of shredded meat and cheese. YUM!
