Pupusas - Stuffed Bread From El SalvadorFrom midgelet 7 years ago
- 4 c. masa harina shopping list
- 2 tsp. salt shopping list
- 2 tsp. baking powder ( not traditional but some recipe do include its use for lightness ) shopping list
- 4 tbsp. shortening (not liquid oil) ex: Crisco shopping list
- 1 1/2 c. warm water (approximately) as needed shopping list
- 1/2 lb. shredded muenster cheese or similar white cheese shopping list
- Garnish: shredded cabbage, carrots or coleslaw shopping list
How to make it
- Combine dry ingredients, cut shortening into dry ingredients with pastry blender; add warm water a few drops at a time and work dough with hands until manageable.
- Knead dough 15-20 times then allow to stand for 10 minutes.
- Form dough into balls the size of an egg or golf ball; roll out one at a time until they are 6 inches in diameter.
- Add some of the cheese top center then put another layer of the tortilla and pat or roll flat to seal
- Some recipes, put filling in center and stretch out pupusa to enclose filling and then patted and rolled out again instead of adding a top layer.
- You can try either way
- Then place on a hot ungreased skillet (one at a time).
- Cook 2 minutes on each side until done.
- Serve with El Salvodran coleslaw ( see separate recipe post ) or plain shredded cabbage and shredded carrots , chopped parsley on top.
