Who likes pupusas?

I do, I do!!  Me gusta y tengo hambre!

When I was in LA, this was common street vendor food.  I really miss them.  There is a pupusería here, just outside the gates, but its hard to get people to go with 😦

From Wikipedia:

The Salvadoran pupusa (from Pipil pupusawa) is a thick, hand-made corn tortilla (made using masa de maíz, a maize flour dough used in Latin American cuisine) that is stuffed with one or more of the following: cheese (queso) (usually a soft Salvadoran cheese called Quesillo), fried pork rind (chicharrón), chicken (pollo), refried beans (frijoles refritos), or queso con loroco (loroco is a vine flower bud from Central America). There is also the pupusa revuelta with mixed ingredients, such as queso (cheese), chicharrón or bacon, and frijoles (beans). Some more creative pupuserías found in western El Salvador serve pupusas with exotic ingredients, such as shrimp, squash, or local herbs.

Pupusas are  traditionally served with curtido (a pickled cabbage relish, possibly containing hot peppers) and tomato sauce, and are traditionally eaten by hand.
