El Salvadorian Bean and Cheese Pupusas

30 mins (prep 10, cooking 20)
9 ingredients
4-6 servings
Pupusas are, in my opinion, El Salvadorian comfort food! A pupusa is like a thick corn flour pancake filled with either beans, cheese, beans and cheese, or beans, cheese and pork (which is called Pupusas Revueltas). It is served with tomato sauce to pour on top or dip bites into, and curtido on the side. These things really put me in a happy place. Enjoy the recipe-- I hope they put you in a happy place as well!
