Originally an invention from El Salvador some 3,000 years ago, pupusas
are now a regular presence on these shores. They're sometimes mistaken for Mexican creations. Tasting notes:
Yummy and definitely filling, if a bit dry. They're better when you add condiments. Buy it again?
Yes. Extra credit:
Try them with Casa Sanchez's addictively thick and crispy tortilla chips and hot salsa.
