This scrupulous little finger food is sold all through Central America but in my experience it is best eaten in the country it originated from, El Salvador.  So what is a Pupusas? As someone explained it to me think of a thick stuffed quesadilla-like food filled with cheese, beans, veggies or your choice of meat.  They are traditionally served with lightly fermented cabbage slaw with red chilies and vinegar and a watery tomato salsa.  At 50 cents a pop I almost completely lived on this warm tasty dish while traveling through El Salvador. Give me two bean & Cheese Pupasas with a local beer and I was full for hours!
