How to Make Cheesy-Melty Pupusas

Pupusas are tortilla-like masa harina discs, stuffed with something delicioso (in this case: queso), and then cooked on a griddle until golden brown outside and cheesy-melty inside. Salvadorean pupusas are traditionally served with a side of a vinegary curtido that’s made with cabbage, carrots and red onion. This is topped with tomato salsa with a hint of heat. It’s the perfect mix of tart, sweet, spicy and cheesealicioso. Check out how traditional pupusas de queso are made, step by step.
