Tip: Ground chicken and low-fat cheese help reduce fat and calories.

  • Directions
  • In a nonstick skillet over low heat, sauté chicken in oil until chicken turns white. Constantly stir the chicken to keep it from sticking.
  • Add onion, garlic, green pepper, and tomato. Cook until chicken mixture is cooked through. Remove skillet from stove and let mixture cool in the refrigerator.
  • While the chicken mixture is cooling, place the flour and salt in a large mixing bowl and stir in enough water to make a stiff tortilla-like dough.
  • When the chicken mixture has cooled, mix in the cheese.
  • Divide the dough into 24 portions. With your hands, roll the dough into balls and flatten each ball into a ½-inch thick circle. Put a spoonful of the chicken mixture in the middle of each circle of dough and bring the edges to the center. Flatten the ball of dough again until it is ½-inch thick.
  • In a very hot, iron skillet, cook the pupusas on each side until golden brown.
  • Serve hot with Curtido salvadoreño
