Additional Information

Chef Maria del Carmen

As a 6 year old, I would sell pupusas, tostadas, chips, and fresh fruit alongside my mother from our food stand in El Salvador. We would make everything from scratch by hand. Revuelta pupusas were the most popular item on our menu. Even now, I’ve kept to the same ingredients, spices, and recipe that my mother used for pupusas. Being authentic and keeping to tradition are the most important things when it comes to food, even if it means doing a little more work.

The pork is baked Salvadorian-style for 4 hours with bell peppers, onions, and herbs. We then roll and mold our corn masa by hand into large round pockets. Each pocket is stuffed with pork, beans, and cheese. We seal the openings with more masa and flatten them into thick discs. Each pupusa is grilled until the masa crisps and the cheese melts.

Pupusas remind me of my childhood. I always think back to when I was a little kid next to my mother, shaping these same pupusas by hand for the customers at our food stand. The best part about it for me has always been just seeing people’s faces brighten up when they take that first bite. If there was something significant I learned from cooking with my mother, it was that there is a genuine connection that you can make with people through food. And that makes me happy.

    :

    Maria makes some awesome pupusas. They’re big, well-made, and full to the brim with tasty ingredients. They taste really authentic. After you pop them in the microwave or the pan, they taste just like when you get them straight from the Estrellita’s stand at the farmer’s market.

    LOVED these! The salsa was so good. This was my first time trying pupusas but definitely won’t be my last ordering these!

    These Pupusas were really good I heated them up on the stove top instead of the Microwave and it’s a big difference…

    Oh Lord are these good! I just wish I could get them 7 days a week! We always get the Chorizo. And that curtido and slaw are perfection!
