BBQ Gorditas & Shrimp

Barbecued Gorditas (Pupusas) with Salsa Shrimp and Spicy Slaw

Rich in fiber, antioxidants and protein, this dish will satisfy your cravings with a tangy twist on a traditional dish!

 

Ingredients:

• 1 package Casa Sanchez Foods Gorditas/Pupusas (we used Black Bean)

• 1 container Casa Sanchez Foods salsa (we used Mild Salsa Roja), divided

• ½ lb pre-cooked shrimp

 

For garnish:

• Fresh cilantro

• Queso fresco

 

For Spicy Slaw:

• ½ head of cabbage, shredded

• 2 carrots, shredded

• ½ onion, thinly sliced

• 1 jalapeno, thinly sliced

• ¼ cup apple cider vinegar

• 3 Tbsp water

• ½ tsp salt

• 1 tsp brown sugar

• 1 tsp oregano

• 1 tsp red pepper flakes (or more, for added heat)

 

Directions:

1. One day ahead of serving this dish, make the slaw (if you care to include this component). Combine cabbage, carrots, onion, jalapeno, vinegar, and water in a large bowl, mixing well. Sprinkle with dry ingredients and toss to cover. Refrigerate overnight.

2. With barbecue on medium-high heat, place gorditas on the grill for 2-3 minutes each side. Remove from heat, set aside. (You can also cook these on the stove or in the microwave).

3. Add one tablespoon olive oil to a skillet over medium heat, add shrimp. Cover with several spoonfuls of Casa Sanchez salsa (about ⅓ of the container), and stir until shrimp are heated through.

4. Place a pupusa on a plate, cover with a spoonful of the salsa, and add several shrimp. Garnish with fresh cilantro and queso fresco. Serve with a side of spicy slaw.
