Let's Make It
Heat oven to 350°F.
Mix water, butter and salt in large bowl. Gradually stir in cornmeal. Knead in Parmesan until mixture forms smooth ball. Let stand 5 min.
Divide dough into 12 equal pieces; shape each into ball. Flatten slightly, rounding edge with a little water if necessary.
Heat griddle to medium-high heat. Add dough rounds; cook until lightly browned on both sides, turning once. Transfer to baking sheet sprayed with cooking spray.
Bake 12 to 15 min. or until golden brown. Serve warm topped with remaining ingredients.

For heartier arepas, serve with cooked ground beef or chicken in addition to the other toppings.
Bake arepas as directed; cool completely. Individually wrap in plastic wrap, then place in freezer-weight resealable plastic bag. Freeze up to 2 months. When ready to serve, unwrap and microwave just until warmed.
