Colombian Arepas

40 mins (prep 20)
6 ingredients
makes 10 to 12 cornmeal cakes
These tasty cornmeal cakes can be found grilled, baked, or fried in several Latin American countries. We love this Colombian version—the outside fries up crisp and golden, while the cheesy middle stays wonderfully moist. They can be eaten as a side dish or paired with hot chocolate for an afternoon snack.
