Pupusas revueltas are a typical Salvadorian meal. For many families, it’s common to go to a pupuseria weekly or even daily, and these visits are always accompanied by the magical charm that comes from eating a delicious pupusa revuelta. To prepare a delicious pupusa, as it ought to be done, you have to use refried beans, quesillo cheese and chicharrón (fried pork rinds). You always serve them with the typical curtido and the exquisite red sauce you can always find at Salvadorian restaurants. The “sauce” is really easy to make, and you only need tomatoes, onion, and dried oregano. This sauce can be kept in the refrigerator for three or four days, which means you can cook a portion of sauce and store it so you can use it several times. MORE + LESS -

  • 1
    Put the tomatoes, onion, water and dried oregano in a pan. Let it boil and stir occasionally. Cover it, reduce heat and let it cook for a few minutes until everything is soft.
  • 2
    Season with salt and blend until you get a smooth sauce. If you feel like it needs more water, add to taste.
  • 3
    Using portions of about 1/2 cup of tortilla mix, pat the mix until you get a tortilla of about the size of your palm. Add a tablespoon (approx.) of beans, quesillo, and chicharron.
  • 4
    Close the tortilla to cover the stuffing.
  • 5
    Keep patting to make a new tortilla. If you need to, moisten your hands slightly so the mix is less sticky.
  • 6
    Cook the pupusas revueltas in a non-stick pan, turning each side twice until you can see they’re cooked.
  • 7
    And of course, serve with red sauce and curtido.

Expert Tips
