Cheese pupusas with green sauce

3lbs prepared masa (purchased fresh), or dried masa rehydrated (4-5 cups)
8 oz queso fresco, crumbled

Make two raw tortillas about 4" in diameter that are about 1/8"
thick, put some cheese on top of one tortilla, then lay the other
on top and seal the edges. When you make the tortillas you'll be
using plastic wrap, leave the bottom tortilla on the plastic and
use it to roll the edges to seal them. (This is a little easier
to show than explain, sort of like sealing a calzone or turnover.)
Lay the finished pupusa on a waxed paper lined cookie sheet and
make some more. This works best if you have two people and one can
flatten the masa and one can fill and seal them. Don't overfill
them (about 1 tbsp per pupusa) and make sure they're completely
sealed. You can stack them raw if there's waxed paper between each
layer. A tortilla press makes this much easier, but a rolling pin
will work. Just don't forget to use the plastic wrap.

Heat a skillet, over medium heat, and put in oil a little less than
1/8" deep. Fry each pupusa for 3-4 minutes per side until golden
brown. They should sizzle as they cook. And they won't be evenly
brown. You may notice they often puff as they cook, that means
you're doing it right.

Serve pupusas hot with a dollop of salsa on top or alongside.
