Ingredients

  • 2

    cups masa harina

  • 1

    cup warm water

  • 1

    cup filling

Directions

1. In a large bowl, mix together the masa harina and water and knead well. Knead in more water, one tablespoonful at a time, if needed to make a moist, yet firm dough. (it should not crack at the edges when you press down on it) Cover and set aside to rest 5 to 10 minutes. 2. Roll dough into a log and cut into 8 equal portions. Roll each portion into a ball. 3. Press a hole in each ball with your thumb. Put about 1 tablespoon of desired filling into each ball and fold the dough over to completely enclose it. press the ball out with your palms to form a disc, taking care that the filling doesn't spill out. 4. Line a tortilla press with plastic and press out each ball to about 5 to 6 inch wide and about 1/4 inch thick. If you don't have a tortilla press, place the dough between two pieces of plastic wrap and roll it out with a rolling pin. 5. Heat an ungreased skillet over medium high flame. Cook each pupusa for about 1-2 minutes on each side, until lightly browned and blistered. Remove to a plate and hold warm until all pupusas are done. VARIATIONS: Pupusas de queso: Use grated quesillo, queso fresco, farmer's cheese, mozzarella, swiss cheese or a combination. Add some minced green chile if you like. Pupusas Revueltas: Use a mixture of fried chopped pork, cheese, and refried beans.
