Corn and Cheese Griddle Cakes (Arepas) - 2 Ww Points
25 mins (prep 10, cooking 15)
7 ingredients
6 servings
These little Venezuelan griddle cakes, known as arepas in Spanish, can be eaten at any time of the day, topped with cheese, meat, chicken, or eggs. You can top them with roast pork or a spoonful of pico de gallo as a delicious side or tempting appetizer. You use nonstick cooking spray quite a bit for this, but I like to use an olive oil spritzer. Enjoy!
