Have you had your daily Arepa? 

Arepas are flatbreads made from ground maize or flour. They are prominent in Colombian and Venezuelan cuisine, where they are served with various pairings, such as cheese, avocado, or topped with a steak. Different size, corn families, and added ingredients are often manipulated, depending on the region, to create new varieties. They are often confused with central american pupusas or Mexican sopes, though they are quite different in taste.



Try them with your favorite salsa, with butter or honey; stuff them with chicken, carne asada, or at breakfast with eggs and chorizo. You may also choose to try them in a car, in a tree, in a boat, with a goat, in the rain, on a train, or just plain...

In short, Arepas are an incredibly versatile and flexible treat that everyone in your family will enjoy!

what is
an arepa

[ aˈɾepa ]

Brush a large nonstick skillet or griddle with butter and heat over medium-high heat. Place as many frozen arepas as reasonably desired, and cook until golden, about 5 to 6 minutes.

Flip and cook until golden, or about 4 more minutes.

Arepas are best enjoyed with your hands. Grab with either hand, approach to your mouth and open ever so slightly; repeat!
