    Never heard of them, but they sound good. Here is a recipe from recipezaar.
    * 5 cups masa harina flour
    * 4 cups water, approximately
    * 16-24 ounces canned refried beans
    * 3 cups soft white cheese
    * light vegetable oil or light olive oil

    1. In a large mixing bowl, gradually stir water into masa harina until dough forms a ball that can be handled.
    2. Into another bowl, empty the refried beans. Place the grated cheese into a separate bowl.
    3. Divide dough into about 25 pieces. Roll each into a ball and flatten between the palms of your hands to about 1/2-inch thick. Put a spoonful of beans and a small handful of cheese into the center of each pupusa. Flatten again with the filling inside.
    4 Heat a heavy, wide-bottomed or flat skillet until hot. Brush with oil and cook pupusas on

  • on each side 4-5 minutes until a pale golden-brown. The outside should be firm.

  • another site has this about how to stuff it:

    3.- Take the 'masa' in your hands and make a ball about two inches in diameter. Once you finish, make a hole with your fingers, take some refriend beans and cheese mix (from step 2) and fill the hole with it.

    4.- Cover the hole with the masa and flatten by using your hands in a clapping motion. This takes practice but the goal is to make a disc.
