  • Mix masa harina and 1-1/4 cups water. If dough seems dry, add additional water, 1 Tbsp. at a time, for proper consistency. Let rest 5 min. Divide into 16 equal balls.
  • Flatten each dough ball on lightly floured surface or with tortilla press into 5-inch round. Cover to keep from drying out. Place 1 Tbsp. cheese between 2 tortillas; pinch edges together to seal.
  • Add coleslaw blend and onions to 4 cups boiling water; cook 5 min. Drain; place in bowl. Add dressing; toss to coat.
  • Heat skillet on medium-high heat. Cook pupusas, in batches, 2 min. on each side or until cheese is melted and tortillas are lightly browned. Served topped with pickled cabbage.


Substitute 2-1/2 cups shredded cabbage and 1/2 cup grated carrots for the coleslaw mix.


Prepare using a red onion for a more colorful topping.
