Gluten Free Hot Pockets

by HEAB on July 21, 2010

After an early morning of dog park adventures, I came home ready to try something different for breakfast, and I rummaged through our cabinets for this…


I bought this bag of corn flour a while back to make waffles but have yet to open it…until my favorite Non Dairy Queen sent me her recipe for papusas, a traditional dish served in El Salvador. Papusas are basically thick handmade corn tortillas, typically stuffed with beans, cheese, and or meat. My version wasn’t quite as traditional, but it sure was delicious. I halved Sarena’s recipe and made enough dough for about 3 large papusas. These are so easy as all they contain are corn flour and warm water, and then you just fry them in a skillet. Thanks Sarena!

I stuffed my first papusa with Katie’s pesto, crumbled goat cheese, and 1 slice of tomato.


Then for dessert, I made another with peanut butter and sliced bananas.


So, next time you feel like popping a Hot Pocket in the microwave, try making a papusa instead! :)

What was your favorite Hot Pocket back in the day? I usually kept it pretty simple with ham & cheese.
