Servings 7


  • Blender
  • Bowl
  • Pan


  • 597 Grams Yellow Corn
  • 4 Tbsp Milk Any type will do
  • 2 Tbsp Sugar
  • 1 Large Egg
  • 1 Cup Corn Flour (Pre-cooked) I used white corn P.A.N.
  • 1 Tsp Kosher Diamond Salt Use less for any other type of salt.
  • 300 grams Mozzarella Cheese Can be substituted for other cheese that melts easily.


Blended Ingredients

  • To a blender add: Corn, Milk, Sugar, Egg, and Salt
  • Blend using pulsing to retain some texture.
  • Set Aside

Flour and Cheese

  • Into a bowl shred the mozzarella cheese
  • Add 1 Cup of Corn Flour


  • Add the blended corn mixture to the bowl and mix the dough very well.


  • Form a ball of dough, medium size
  • With the use of a press or by placing the ball in between two sheets of parchment paper you can make a round patty that resembles a thick tortilla. Approximately 1/4 inch (6.35mm) in thickness.
    Otherwise, if you want to use your hands, wet them with water and a little oil. Flatten the dough and start shaping it until it forms a medium sized patty.


  • To a pan with a medium heat add 1 tsp of oil and spread.
  • Cook the arepas for a total of 4-5 minutes. 2:35 on each side or so until golden brown.


  • Eat as is or add your favorite toppings. In the picture above, I added caramelized onions, sausage, mashed avocado and topped it off with a bit of Sriracha sauce.
  • For breakfast I just top it off with a little sour cream.
