2 1/2 cups warm water
2 tablespoons butter, melted
1 tablespoon sugar
2 cups arepa flour
4 ounces queso blanco or feta
4 ounces Parmigiano Reggiano
Mix all together and let sit for five minutes. Knead together and form into patties to fry.
Heat a skillet. Add a little oil on top and fry the arepa until it is lightly golden. Flip and brown. Serve with beans, pork, beef or chicken.
Check out this lovely lady on you Tube showing how to make arepas- I need to try her recipe! There are a ton of videos on arepas.
I just learned about Hello Arepa here in Rochester. Apparently, they are at the Pittsford Farmers Market on Thursday nights and different places for lunch. You can check out their Facebook page here. I must go check these out.
