"A popular food in El Salvador. A thick Corn tortilla filled with cheese, and easy to customize. Serve topped with Curtido (picked cabbage, recipe below) or eat plain. My ex-boyfriends Salvadorean mother's recipe!"
1) In a large bowl, mix together the Masa Harina, salt and water and knead well. Knead in more water, drops at a time, if neccesary to make a moist dough. it shouldn't crack at the edges when you press down on it. Set aside to rest 5-10 minutes.
2) in a small bowl, stir together the cheeses, heavy cream and scallions to make a paste
3) Form dough into 8 balls and press your thumb into the center of each. Fill holes with filling and fold dough over to enclose it. flatten and smooth between both hands into a round, making sure no filling seeps out. flatten to 1/4" thick, using wax paper or just your hands, keeping the shape round
4)lightly grease a skillet. over medium heat cook each Pupusa for approximately 2-3 minutes on each side until browned.
mix all ingredients together (tastes best if left in the fridge overnight)
When ready to serve, drain Curtido and serve on top of the Pupusas
