A recipe from El Salvador for traditional Papusas. Can be made with spiced meat and cheese, or with refried beans for the non-meat eaters like myself.

Recipe Ingredients for Papusas

2 cups Masa Harina
1 1/2 cups Water, Warm
1 tbsp Cumin, Ground
1/2 cup Cilantro, Chopped
1 1/2 cups Organic Refried Black Beans

Recipe Directions for Papusas

  1. In a mixing bowl, mix together the masa harina, water, cumin, and 1/2 teaspoon salt and stir into a manageable dough.

  2. The dough should be soft but not sticky; add more flour if needed. If dough is dry and hard to form, add more water.

  3. To make 3-inch round Papusas, put about 1/2 cup of the dough in your hand for each Papusa.

  4. Roll into a ball and flatten in your hand.

  5. Put 1/4 cup beans, 1 tsp Cilantro, and salt and pepper to taste in the center.

  6. Work the edges up over the filling and again form a ball, completely enclosing the filling. This takes only a few seconds.

  7. Flatten each ball to about 1/4 inch or less and cook the papusas on a hot, lightly oiled griddle for about 3 minutes per side, or until both sides are lightly browned.

  8. Serve warm.
