  1. Mix the masa harina, water and salt adding enough water to get a play dough like consistency. (The dough should not break up and crack a lot along the edges when you form it into a ball and flatten it.)
  2. Form into 8 2 inch balls, flatten the balls, top with the cheese filling, fold the edges up forming a ball and flatten it into a pancake.
  3. Heat a lightly oiled heavy bottom pan over medium-high heat, add the pupusas and cook until lightly charred, golden brown and crispy on both sides, about 2-4 minutes per side.

Option: Add 1 tablespoon refried beans to the filling!

Option: Add 1 tablespoon pulled pork such as carnitas or pork al pastor or pork tinga or pork pibil or lechon asado to the filling!

Option: Add a 1-2 tablespoons lard or bacon grease to the dough.

Option: Serve with guasacaca (avocado sauce).
