They were a lot of fun to make, and I plan on making them every once in a while. :)
First you need masa harina (it's similar to corn flour)....or corn meal. I used corn meal. You also need warm water and filling (meat and/or cheese).
2 cups masa harina
1-1.5 cups warm water
Mix the masa harina with water.
The dough needs to be mold-able. Add more water than you think you need. You'll be happier with the result.
Roll a bit of the dough into a gold ball sized ball. Then carefully press the center into a bowl shape.
Fill the "bowl" with meat and cheese. Fill it completely. (I use about 3 times as much filling as shown total.)
Then, push the dough back together, covering the filling. Press it out to about one-quarter inch thick.
Do everything with your hands. Don't set the pupusas down.
Then place in a pre-heated skillet. I can cook one side in the time it takes for me to make another pupusa, maybe 3-4 minutes. Check it. It should be kinda crispy and the cheese should be melted. Then flip it and cook for the same amount of time on the other side.
After they have finished cooking, eat them with salsa or sour cream.
