Elaboración paso a paso
 

  • Preparation
  • Bring the milk to a boil in a small pan. Add butter. Let stand and cool slightly.
  • Grind frozen yellow corn kernels in a food processor.
  • You can find arepa flour at many Latin and Mexican markets (for example P.A.N.). If there isn’t one near you, grind corn meal 1/4 cup at a time in your blender, and add 1/2 cup of flour.
  • In a large bowl, mix the ground corn, arepa flour or cornmeal, salt, sugar, and mozzarella. Make a well in the center and gradually add the hot milk and butter mixture. Stir until there are no lumps. Work the dough until it is smooth and sticky.
  • Take the rest of the butter and heat it on a frying pan. Drop arepa mix in rounded tablespoonfuls on to the pan. Fry on each side 3-5 minutes until browned.
  • To serve, butter the arepa and add extra grated mozzarella cheese or queso blanco on top. If you made the arepa slightly larger, you can cut a slit in the middle and stuff them with the cheese. Otherwise, you can take two arepas, add the cheese in the middle and eat them like a sandwich.
