Arepas recipe (Bread)

Yield: 10 servings

2 cups corn flour for arepas
1 teaspoon salt
½ cups grated queso blanco
2 cups cool water

Posted by Joan2007 on May 6, 2009


In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, salt, and queso blanco. Stir in enough water to make a firm, slightly moist dough. Cover the dough and let it rest for 5 minutes. Divide the dough into 10 pieces and form each piece into a ball. Flatten the balls slightly.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Oil a griddle very lightly and warm it over medium heat. Cook the arepas on the griddle for about 5 minutes on each side, until a golden brown crust forms. Transfer the arepas to a baking sheet and bake 20 to 25 minutes, turning them several times as they bake.
Serve immediately. Serve with black beans.
