Pupusa cooking
* Note: You do need a skillet/griddle that goes to 500 degrees F.

2 c. masaca flour
2 c. water
Dash of salt
Small dish of vegetable oil
Fillings, such as cheese, refried beans, ground or pulled pork, etc.

Mix the flour and the salt together. Add water and mix with your hands until you have a slightly sticky dough. Let sit for 5 minutes.

Pupusas on the skillet
Separate dough into 8 equal sized pieces. Take one piece of dough in your hands and slap it back and forth until it is about the circumference of a baseball. Shape it into a bowl in your hand. Stuff full with filling(s). Close dough tightly around filling, creating an air free ball of dough with filling inside. Rub a little oil onto the palms of your hands and slap the dough back and forth between them, flattening it into a circle about 6 inches across. Filling may pop through here and there, but take care to keep it to a minimum.

Heat skillet to about 500 degrees. Place flattened pupusa dough on ungreased skillet; leave for 4 minutes. Flip and cook the other side another 4 minutes. Serve hot. Recipe makes 8 pupusas.

Ready to eat!
