Food Facts
To talk about arepas is to talk about Venezuela. Arepas are served for breakfast, lunch and dinner at any Venezuelan table, usually plain with butter and Apure (Venezuelan cheese). They can be grilled, fried or boiled. Arepa dough can also be used to make other Venezuelan delicacies, such as empanadas and hallacas (Venezuelan tamales).
Prepare and shape dough as directed. Cook patties (arepas) on griddle on medium-high heat 5 min. on each side or until lightly browned on both sides. Place arepas on foil-covered baking sheet. Bake at 350°F for 12 to 15 min. or until cooked through. Split and fill arepas as directed.
