Family Recipe Friday....Pupusas

Now here’s a bit of a treat that I learned while living south of San Antonio. I make this quite often for myself as a treat. [I can eat these for a meal actually!] DH likes them as well. Think “stuffed tortilla” and you’ll get the idea!


2 cups of corn masa harina

1 cup water

1 cup shredded cheese mix

(frying cheese, mozzarella, ricotta)


Cooking Instructions:

Mix corn masa harina and water

together in a mixing bowl until

smooth. Knead well. Cover bowl

and let dough rest for 10 minutes.

Shape dough into eight 2-inch

diameter balls. On a lightly floured surface, roll each

back into 6-inch flat rounds. Each round should be

about 1/8th of an inch thick.

Sprinkle ¼ cup of cheese over each round. Place a second

round over the cheese and pinch the edges together to

seal the cheese in.

Heat in a slightly greased skillet over medium high heat.

Cook one round at a time, about 2 minutes on each side

or until lightly browned.

Notes: Can be stuffed with a combination of cheese, refried beans,

fried pork rind or chicken.
