PUPUSA DOUGH ▢ Masa Harina ▢ Salt ▢ Cold Water FILLING ▢ Refried Beans ▢ Cheese of Choice (we use plant-based)
In a large mixing bowl, add the Masa harina and salt.
Pour cold water over the flour and start stirring with a spatula.
When it starts to be difficult to stir, knead by hand or with a stand mixer paddle attachment for 1 or 2 minutes.
Form a large ball to make sure the dough is consistent.
Oil your hands to prevent the dough from sticking to your fingers. Then, scoop out 3 tablespoons of dough and roll into a ball.
Flatten the 18 balls on your benchtop into thick, even circles.
Hold in the center of one hand and fill the center with 1 teaspoon of refried bean and 1 teaspoon of vegan cheese.
Close your hand to fold the dough into a pocket and pinch the sides to seal.
Roll into a ball again and pat out between your hands to flatten and form a thick circle of flatbread.
Cook the Pupusas for 2-3 minutes on one side in a non-stick cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat.
Flip and cook for 1-2 extra minutes. The Pupusas are ready when they are golden with dark black dots and crispy.
