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.

Arepas are corn pockets, like pitas, that have origins in the indigenous tribes of South America. A popular street food or snack in Venezuela and Colombia, they can be eaten plain but are usually split and stuffed with savory fillings. This filling is a classic combination of black beans and queso fresco, but you can fill these with anything you like. Other suggested fillings include shredded cooked chicken or pork, corn salad with onion and fresh herbs, tomatoes, and avocado. Note that this calls for arepa flour, which is precooked yellow or white cornmeal. Sometimes sold as masarepa or harina precocida, it can be found in Latin American markets and some supermarkets, and is not the same as masa harina. This recipe is gluten-free and, if the cheese is left out, vegan. -Linda Shiue Excerpted from SPICEBOX KITCHEN: Eat Well and Be Healthy with Globally Inspired, Vegetable-Forward Recipes by Linda Shiue, MD.

Elotes Mexican Grilled Corn recipe
