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.
Easy to make with a few pantry staples, entomatadas are similar to enchiladas. They contain similar ingredients; tortillas and a crumbly cheese filling. This recipe allows room for personalization too. Add whichever filling you fancy; cheese, beans or a protein. It's up to you. Recipe courtesy of Mexican Please
