The filling can be almost anything. Traditionally:
Pupusas de Queso: With a cheese filling. Use grated quesillo, queso fresco, farmer's cheese, mozzarella, Swiss cheese or a combination. Add some minced green chile if you like.
Pupusas de Chicharrones: With a filling of fried chopped pork and a little tomato sauce. A reasonable facsimile can be made by pulsing 1 cup of cooked bacon with a little bit of tomato sauce in a food processor.
Pupusas de Frijoles Refritos: With a refried bean filling.
Pupusas Revueltas: Use a mixture of chicharrones, cheese and refried beans.
Pupusas de Queso y Loroco: With a cheese and tropical vine flower filling. Loroco can be found in jars at many Latin markets.
Pupusas de Arroz: A variety of pupusa that uses rice flour instead of corn masa.
Cooked potatoes or finely minced, sautéed jalapeño peppers are also tasty fillings.
I used the filling Gringo Re-Fried Beans as that is what I had on hand, it is in SP.
Try a mixture of different fillings.
The recipe uses masa harina, a special dried cornmeal flour used in making tortillas, tamales, etc. If you are able to get fresh masa, definitely use it instead. The flavor will be much fresher. Just substitute the masa harina and water with fresh masa. One pound will make about 4-6 pupusas depending on size.Submitted by MADEMCHE
I found this recipe on about.com by Jolinda Hackett. I made these and they were absolutely delicious! The burger patty cooks formed, but just a note that when cooked, they will be a soft patty and not hard like a burger. Also, I used Goya Canned Pinto Beans, and I rinsed them several times with water in a mesh strainer to remove most of the sodium. I also used about 3/4 tbsp of butter to sautee the garlic, onions, scallions, and mushrooms, so the nutrition information has been adjusted to reflect the butter. (The original recipe sautees in vegetable oil)
*(I'm not a vegetarian, but I know that if you do use the vegetable oil for sauteeing, then it adheres to vegan dietary restrictions. Not too sure how the butter affects those standards, but just another little side note)*
