Guatemalan pupusa
Like arepas in South America and gorditas in Mexico, pupusas are made of corn dough. In Central America, the dry corn for pupusa dough is soaked in an alkaline solution to remove the tough outer skin and preserve the nutrients in the kernels. In the US, we call this resultant corn process "hominy." Pupusas don't have to have a filling but almost everything's better with cheese!
