Salvadoran Stuffed Masa Cakes

60 mins (prep 60)
10 ingredients
makes 16 cakes
In El Salvador, these satisfying little corn snacks are made with quesillo, but many Salvadorans in the United States substitute mozzarella, as we've done here. Cheese on its own is a popular pupusa filling, but we particularly like this hearty revuelta (mixture) that includes red beans and salty, crisp-fried pork rind.
