Pupusas in Vacaville at El Caracol
A pupusa is a traditional Salvadorian dish. It is made of a thick, handmade corn tortilla that can be stuffed with various types of meats, cheese or refreid beans.
Some of stuffing ingredients may include: cheese ( usually a viscous cheese called quesillo that is very common in certain countries), chicharrón (pork rinds), squash, refried beans, or cheese with loroco. It can also be made with a mix of ingredients such as cheese, beans, and chicharrón.
It is typically accompanied by curtido (a spicy cabbage slaw), and tomato salsa, and is traditionally eaten by hand, without the use of utensils.
The pupusa is the most common staple food of El Salvador, most likely because it is a traditional dish that has been passed down from generation to generation and you can enjoy them here, at El Caracol Mexican Restaurant.
