How to make it

  • In a mixing bowl add cornmeal, salt, pepper, baking powder and mix well.
  • Stir in cheese well.
  • With a fork stir in boiling water well, then add egg and continue to mix well with a fork until dough leaves the side of the bowl.
  • Knead dough together with your hands only to form into a ball.
  • Pull off pieces of dough and shape into hamburger like patties, about 3 to 4 inch in diameter and about 1/2 inch thick.
  • In a nonstick pan or griddle heat some olive oil or butter or combination of both over medium high heat and cook arepas until golden brown on each side, turning once or twice on each side.
  • Serve arepas hot with extra shredded mozzarella cheese piled over the top or sour cream if desired.
  • Even tomato sauce taste great on them.
  • Arepas also can be split in half with a sharp knife and made into sandwich filled with cheese and veggies.
