Arepa Bar

Arepas

  • 1 C Masa Arepa (Pre Cooked Dehydrated Fine Ground Corn)
  • 1 1/2 Tsp Kosher Salt
  • 1 1/4 C Water
  • 2 Tbsp Vegetable Oil

Combine corn flour and salt in a clean stainless bowl, add water and mix till well combined then cover with a

plate. Let dough rest for 20 minutes to allow the water to absorb. Split the dough into 4 equal sized balls

and form each into a hockey puck shape. Have a small bowl of water nearby to help form the pucks, using

the water to smooth any cracks as you go. Let rest another couple minutes to let the surface moisture

absorb.

Preheat oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit. Preheat a large cast iron pan to medium heat.

Rub both of the flat sides of each formed arepa dough with vegetable oil and place in preheated pan, making

sure to gently press down on each arepa in the pan. Let the arepa cook till medium brown then flip and

repeat, each side should take approximately 5 minutes. Once both sides are browned, place in the oven for

15 minutes to fully cook.

Remove from the oven and allow to cool enough to handle. Using a sharp knife, cut the arepa in half

horizontally. Fill the arepa with your favourite fillings, there a few ideas below to get you started.
