Pork pupusas take me back to my childhood vacations in El Salvador. We would visit my grandmother every year and we would always enjoy going to the traditional pupusa shops. I don’t remember having pupusas with any sauce other than the ever-present pickled cabbage, but nowadays, the “sauce” made from tomatoes is found in all of the pupusa plates. For this recipe, I prepared an exquisite and spicy natural yogurt sauce with chipotles in adobo. This is a different, but equally delicious flavor for a traditional dish. MORE + LESS -

1
tablespoon of chipotles marinated in adobo sauce, including the sauce

  • 1
    In a bowl, mix the YoplaitTM yogurt with the finely-chopped marinated chipotles. Add a bit of salt to modify the seasoning. Set aside in the fridge.
  • 2
    In the meanwhile, heat the chicharrón in a pan and set aside until it cools down to room temperature.
  • 3
    Knead the tortilla dough until it is soft and no longer sticks to the hands.
  • 4
    Take a 1/2 cup portion of the dough and form a tortilla, patting with both hands. If necessary, moisten your hands with a bit of water, so that the dough doesn’t stick.
  • 5
    Hollow out the center and place about one tablespoon of chicharrón. Close the tortilla, forming a ball, and pat again in order to make a thick tortilla, nearly the size of your palm.
  • 6
    Cook in a hot pan, turning twice, until you see that that they are lightly golden.
  • 7
    Serve immediately with the pickled cabbage and the Yoplait™ yogurt sauce with adobo marinated chipotles.
