Pickled Red Cabbage
3/4
cup olive oil
3
tablespoons cider vinegar
1 1/2
teaspoons Dijon mustard
1/4
teaspoon salt
1/4
teaspoon pepper
1/4
teaspoon chicken bouillon granules
2 1/2
cups shredded red cabbage
1/2
cup thinly sliced white onion
1
small jalapeño chile, seeded, thinly sliced
Pupusa Filling
2
teaspoons olive oil
1
clove garlic, finely chopped
1
tablespoon onion, finely chopped
1
can (14 oz) refried black beans (1 1/2 cups)
Pupusa Masa
2 1/2
cups instant tortilla masa flour
2 1/4
cups water
1
teaspoon salt
  1. In large bowl, mix first 6 ingredients of pickled red cabbage. Stir in cabbage, sliced onion and chile. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.
  2. In 10-inch skillet, heat oil over medium heat; stir in garlic and chopped onion. Cook 1 to 2 minutes or until onion is transparent. Stir in refried beans. Cook 1 to 2 minutes to blend flavors. Set aside.
  3. In large bowl, mix pupusa masa ingredients by hand. Stir until soft, smooth dough forms. Using wet hands, shape mixture into 1/3-cup balls, shaping each into 4-inch circle, 3/4 inch thick. Place 1 tablespoon filling mixture in center of each circle and fold in half, sealing edges. With wet hands, carefully flatten and shape back into 4-inch circle, 3/4 inch thick. Wet hands, as needed, to prevent dough from cracking and sticking to hands. Cover pupusas with waxed paper while making remainder of pupusas.
  4. Heat 12-inch nonstick skillet over medium heat. Cook papusas in skillet about 4 at a time 8 to 10 minutes, or until dough is golden brown and dark spots appear, turning once or twice. Keep warm.
  5. To serve, top each papusa with about 1/4 cup pickled red cabbage.

Green cabbage can be used in place of the red cabbage; however, it won't have the pretty pink color.
