What is a Salvadoran Pupusa?
The Pupusas are thick stuffed corn cakes from El Salvador called pupusas. Like the bruising older brother of a Mexican taco, the disks come stuffed with your choice of cheese, chicharrones, and any number of other options. Pupusas are also a popular dish in Honduras, especially in southern regions. Every second Sunday of November, a National day of the Pupusas is celebrated throughout El Salvador. Pupusas are known as El Salvador’s national dish.
