History of the Pupusa
The History of the Pupusa can be traced back to the Pipiles, an indigenous group that established settlements in El Salvador during the PreColumbian period.
Historians agreed that Pupusas were a basic component of the daily Pipiles diet. As a matter of fact, cooking utensils for preparation of Pupusas have been found in Joya de Cerén, a world-known archeological site located in El Salvador.
The settlement was buried by ashes from a volcano eruption almost two thousand years ago. The foodstuffs were preserved as they were being cooked.
Pupusa or “ Puputsa” , as it was known in the Pipiles’ native language, means "mixed bulk". The corn continues to be the main ingredient in the diet of all countries from Mexico thru Central America.
