Preparation

Dough Recipe Directions

  2. On low speed, combine all dry ingredients.
  3. Slowly add water on low speed until dough forms. Dough should be thick and sticky.

  3. Place a ball in the palm of your hand, and with the thumb of your other hand, make an indentation in the center of the ball. Pinch sides up a bit to make a well for the filling.
  4. Add filling, and pinch dough around filling to enclose. Gently flatten by hand out to a 4” disc. Repeat for the remaining dough balls.
  5. Cook pupusas in a large cast iron skillet or griddle over medium heat until center slightly puffs up and pupusa is browned in spots and crispy on the outside.
  6. Serve hot with a side of sour cream garnished with chives.
