An especially tasty El Salvadoran treat with the added benefit of vegetables! We find them at our local farmers market, and they are slightly bigger than the traditional Pupusa (try saying that without smiling, seriously!). Serve with the traditional coleslaw called Curtido on the side and a dash of hot sauce. Yummy!

Recipe Ingredients for Pupusas de Queso (Cheese-Stuffed Tortillas)

2 cups masa harina
1 cup water
1 cup queso fresco
1/2 cup spinach
1/4 cup tomato, diced
1/8 cup carrot, shredded

Recipe Directions for Pupusas de Queso (Cheese-Stuffed Tortillas)

  1. Stir the masa harina and water together in a mixing bowl until smooth; knead well. Cover bowl and let dough rest 5-10 minutes.

  2. Shape dough into eight, 2-inch diameter balls. On a lightly-floured surface, roll each ball into a 6-inch diameter round tortilla. Sprinkle 1/4 cup of queso fresco and 1/4 of veggie ingredients over each round. Place a second tortilla over the cheese and pinch edges together to seal the cheese.

  3. Heat an ungreased skillet over medium-high heat. Place one tortilla in skillet at a time, and cook until the cheese melts and tortillas are lightly browned, about 2 minutes each side.
