 n.— «Everyone in El Salvador knows the pupusa. This thick tortilla, typically filled with combinations of cheese, beans, pork and a green vegetable blossom called loroco, is a staple of restaurants and home kitchens. Served with a thin, red salsa and curtido (a cabbage-and-carrot relish), pupusas are snacks, lunch, dinner—and sometimes even breakfast.» —“Pupusas filled with the taste of El Salvador” by Juan Obra Sacramento Bee (California) Apr. 6, 2005.
