Step 1

Add masa harina (corn flour) and salt to a large mixing bowl.

Step 2

Add the warm water, little by little, mixing the dough with your hand. You may not need all of the water. You want the masa to be the consistency of a soft play dough. If the dough is too wet, mix in some more masa harina. If it’s too dry, add a little more water.Mix in butter and chicken bouillon, if using.

Step 3

Scoop the dough into large, golf-ball-size portions. You can scoop all of the dough into balls before continuing, or make 1 pupusa at a time. Be sure to keep the dough covered with a damp cloth as you work, to keep it from drying out.

Step 4

Use the palms of your hands to pat the dough into a disc, about 4 inches in diameter.

Step 5

Scoop about half a tablespoon of the beans and place it in the center of the dough circle, followed by a pinch of shredded cheese.

Step 6

Gently bring the edges of the dough up and around the filling, pinching it closed into a ball. Gently pat the dough between your palms to form it into a disc again.Be gentle so you don’t have big cracks of filling come through, but if you do have some, its fine! They don’t need to be perfect :)

Step 7

Heat a large ungreased skillet or pan over medium heat. Place pupusas on the hot pan and cook for about 2-4 minutes on each side. You will know the pupusas are ready to flip when the edges are set and the bottom is lightly golden.

Step 8

Serve immediately, topped with Curtido and Salsa Roja.
