What’s a pupusa?

Pronunciation:
[pu’pusa]
from Pipil pupusawa

A pupusa is a traditional Salvadoran dish made of a thick, handmade corn tortilla (made using masa de maíz, a cornmeal dough used in Mesoamerican cuisine). Pupusas are commonly prepared with a variety of fillings including cheese, meat, and refried beans. Pupusas are typically served with curtido (lightly fermented cabbage slaw with red chilies and vinegar).
