Top Rated Pupusa Recipes

Made from masa dough — which is also the base for tortillas, tamales and other Latin cooking staples — pupusas are thick corn cakes filled with a variety of ingredients such as pork, chicken, cheese or beans. For certain, they are always served with curtido, a wonderfully crunchy and tangy cabbage slaw, and a simple red salsa. Most of the components of pupusas can be prepared a day ahead, leaving the pressing, patting, stuffing and grilling for the hour before eating. Invite your friends and kids to join in for a fun and interactive day in the kitchen.This recipe is by Laura Levy Shatkin and was originally published in the Chicago Tribune.
