Pupusas are better known in Guatemala as tortilla con chicharrón or tortilla con queso, et cetera. I called them Mayan pizzas. Pupusas is a name inherited from El Salvador to a dish which can be found in the Southeast Mexico, Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras, and quite possibly all the countries in Central America under various names. Pupusas are “normally” about the size of CD and are made from a mixture of maize dough, cheese, and whatever ingredient you ask for from a menu.
It was interesting to see black pupusas on sale for the Day of the Virgin of Guadalupe on December 12. That day was the first time I have seen black pupusas, although I have seen black tortillas (sometimes called blue tortillas).
Have you ever seen black pupusas before and where?
