Unlike most western countries, Central American countries have one major staple food that they eat religiously daily and sometimes at every meal.
Find out some more fun facts about the El Salvador food.
El Salvador is no different. Pupusas are their ‘holier-than-thou’ food and are actually quite tasty, filling and easy to make.
Basically, what they are are stuffed tortillas. You can fill the masa with cheese, chorizo, beans, or combine them all together. And to top it off make sure to put red tomato sauce and their version of a sour cabbage claw.
We got really lucky and saw them make the homemade corn masa for the tortillas in an ancient, yet still function corn dough machine in Suchitoto.
The best place to get them are at a Pupuseria which is all about Pupusas and one big one costs less than $1.
