Community Cooks: Pupusas Familia

Community Cooks: Pupusas Familia Online

Join us for "Community Cooks". We invite you to gather online with us for a virtual dinner party and cooking demo. A new cook every month will be sharing recipes close to their heart and culture. Ingredients lists will be released a week prior so you can cook along! 

 This month's cooks: Franklin Escobar (with @familiapupusas) and his aunt will be making spinach and cheese pupusas. Pupusas are the most well known Salvadorian dish. It is a hand made corn stuffed tortilla that you serve with curtido (coleslaw) and tomato salsa. There are so many flavors you can make, from a delicious vegan one to a yummy cheese one you can add your favorite veggies into. They are 100% gluten free.
