    Chicken and Cheese Pupusas

    If you're looking for a pupusa that will serve as dinner, try this chicken and cheese pupusa. It's hearty and easy to throw together, with just store bought rotisserie chicken. Serve with a side salad and dinner is done. 


    Ingredients
    2
    cups
    masa harina
    1/2
    cup
    warm water
    *
    pinch of salt
    1/2
    cup
    shredded cheddar cheese
    1/2
    cup
    shredded mozzarella cheese
    1
    cup
    shredded rotisserie chicken
    1
    teaspoon
    Olive Oil
    Directions
    In a large bowl combine the masa harina, warm water, and salt. Knead until dough forms. If the mixture is too soft add one tablespoon of masa harina and if the dough is too hard add one tablespoon of warm water until you get a clay-like consistency. Cover the bowl with a wet towel for 10 minutes.
    With oiled hands form three-inch balls with the dough. Using your finger make an indent in each ball then fill the dough with 1 tablespoon of cheddar cheese, 1 tablespoon of mozzarella cheese, and 1 tablespoon of shredded chicken. Close the indent (if there is any filing leaking cover with a piece of extra dough).
    Pat the dough back and fourth in your hands until you create a disk like shape. Repeat with the remaining balls of masa harina. Heat a skillet to medium high heat with 1 teaspoon of olive oil. Cook the pupusas for 2 minutes on each side until golden brown.
