Venezuelan Arepas

Venezuelan Arepas

 

Arepas!!!! If you have never heard of these, they are Venezuelan sandwiches made of pre-cooked white corn meal and stuffed with cheese and just about anything else you want to add.  You can add meat, veggies or both. My very good friend from Venezuela taught me how to make these many years ago with chicken and they are so delicious that I never looked for another recipe️. If you do have leftover arepas from dinner, you can cook up some eggs in the morning to make an egg sandwich and I promise you it will be better than anything you will get at a restaurant!  These also make a great meal option for gluten free diets or entertaining for your gluten free friends since the arepa is made of corn.  These taste so amazing and are such a fun and easy dish to make.  I hope you give these a try!

 

This is the corn meal for making the arepas but any pre-cooked white corn meal should work as long as it is a fine texture.
