Great for breakfast, appetizer or side dish with soups. For breakfast add your favorite filler like egg and bacon, cheese and ham, chicken or tuna salad etc.


  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 cup of pre-cooked white corn flour
  • 1 1/4 cups of warm water


Put the corn flour in a bowl and add the salted water little by little, mixing with the flour until all the water has been used and the flour has become a dough. Let it rest for five minutes. Now, shape the dough into round rolls about 3 inches in diameter and 1/2 inch thick. In a lightly greased skillet, slowly cook the arepas until a crust forms on each side. Now place them into a casserole and bake in the oven at 350 degrees for approximately 20 minutes, until the arepas sound hollow when tapped.

To enhance taste: instead of using just water, use chicken or beef broth.
