Cheese Arepas?

Anyone here make arepas on the regular? I could look up recipes online, but I'd rather get one from someone here.

I have never made them, nor had one. But would love to try them sometime. (Saw a show about them, they look really good!) Maybe I will make some if you get some recipes!

They are made with cornmeal. It's almost like a bread/cake and you fry them and then stuff them with fillings just like a sandwich. I think they are popular in Colombia and Venezuela.

I saw a Bobby Flay throwdown episode and they looked very good but not that easy to make.

Here is the link to that on Foodnetwork's site:

Arapas with Cheese / Arapas con Queso

1 cup Masarepa “pre-cooked arepa flour”
1 cup warm water
Pinch salt

Cheese
Oil

Mix Masarepa, water and salt. Let rest for a few minutes.
Divide into 4 balls.
Flatten out (make sure your edges are in a circle)

Heat heavy pan on medium low and some oil. Add your Arapas and cook slowly until cooked almost thru.

Remove from pan, let cool and cut a slit in the middle.
Add cheese.
Cook until the cheese has melted. (I like to do this step on a hot grill over a high flame)

Great pics, PP.

I've been meaning to make them, but may have to find a market that sells arepa flour(?). Saved a few recipes, & like this arepa chicken/avocado sandwich:

Thank you.

That does look like a good sandwich. In Colombia they stuffed them with all kinds of stuff.

Look for Masarepa or Harina P.A.N.

Brazilian/South American sandwiches. A filled type of tortilla, not quite a pupusa, not quite bread, but 110% AMAZINGLY good when done right.
