Sorry, I think you are SOL on this one. EP just does not have any sort of significant salvadoran population.

I was curious as to what a pupusa was....and found several recipes for them. You don't have to stuff them with cheese....you can use meat, beans, potatoes, etc.

They look like a PITA to make, but interesting to try out.

Last time I looked at the US Census figures, there are something like 4000 Salvadorans in El Paso and that's just the foreign-born ones. Of course, El Paso's population is over 600,000. I wonder if anybody's thought about setting up a Salvadoran restaurant there.

I'm actually thinkin bout' opening a salvadoran restaurant. I mean all my family moving down here n we can't survive without pupusas hahaha. I'm from a very small town in arkansas n there is so many ppl from everywhere, puerto rico, el salvador, guatemala, honduras, nicaragua, colombia, republica dominicana, ecuador, peru, hawaii, marshall islands, everywhere. I thought that since El Paso is a city... I would find more diversity, but I guess ppl here are just more american. Its very sad. Over there you meet someone and the first thing you ask is "Where you from?".

Looks like most of the Hispanics in El Paso are Mexican, but maybe somebody can make Salvadoran food sell there. Go for it.

El Paso is Mexican -- you'd do fine if you opened another burrito or taco stand because here that's about all anyone wants other than a few chain fast food restaurants.

It might be a good idea to put some Mexican or Tex-Mex stuff on the menu along with the Salvadoran dishes.

Up to you. No pain, no gain...
