It’s been really a long time since my last post. I am busier than usual,but I can’t complain! Be stay at home mom is a very underestimated 24/7 “job”. Many people think that is really easy,but they obviously don’t have a clue!
Sometimes,though…Let me rephrase:most of the times though,I miss having a job! But staying at home makes me teaching my kid the manners and principles should have,plus I can experiment more as far as the food! Lately,I tried an El Salvadorian dish called pupusas,which is a dough filled either with meat or cheese. I made my own version of cheese filling.
Is super easy and very tasty!
- 2 cups masa harina
- 1 1/2-1 3/4 cups warm water
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
For the filling:
- 1/2 teaspoon fresh thyme
- 1 cup mozzarella,shredded
- 1/4 crumbled Gorgonzola or any other blue cheese you prefer.
In a small bowl,combine all the filling ingredients.
In a big bowl,mix the masa harina,with 1 1/2 cups water and the salt together to make a dough. Dumb the dough on the counter. If it cracks you need more water. You will know the dough is right when is smooth.
Break off a handful of dough and form a ball. Flatten the ball slightly and make an indention in the dough and add a tablespoon of the cheese filling. Fold the two edges like a taco and press together.
Fold the other edges together.
Set the dough on the counter and press the dough to cover the filling.
Flatten it out into a 1/4 inch disc. Don’t press it too much!
Heat a griddle or a skillet over medium to medium-medium high heat and lay the lupus as in a single layer. Cook for 5 minutes until brown.
Flip,and cook for another 5 minutes.
