Tres Pupusas Salvadorian Stuffed Corn Tortillas (Vegan Versions)


We have not yet trialed Tres Pupusas, so this is an informational post only (see comments; others may have shared their thoughts). I cannot yet give it a rating or personally weigh in on the taste, texture, etc, but if you have tried it, please do leave a comment with your take on these frozen entrees!

What’s a pupusa? Think of it like a Latin hot pocket but with a corn tortilla shell and much healthier filling – especially the vegan versions of Tres Pupusas. I spotted these interesting little meals in the freezer section of Whole Foods a few months ago, and decided to learn a bit more. Tres Pupusas are all gluten-free and vegetarian, but at last count, they had two vegan / dairy-free varieties, too: Black Bean & Sweet Corn and Pinto Bean & Kale.

The ingredients in each of the Tres Pupusas vegan flavors are quite simple, just organic corn massa, beans, vegetables, olive oil and seasonings – perfect for purists! They’re quite low calorie (just 130 per pupusa / 4 in a package) and low sugar, but each have a good little dose of fiber and protein. To prepare, you just pan fry each pupusa in a little oil.
