Spiced Cheesy Arepas

Instructions equipment

Step 1: Pour milk into a small saucepan over medium heat. Heat until just hot but not boiling. Stir butter into milk.

Step 2: Combine milk, cornmeal, cheese, corn, jalapeno, iSpice World FlavorsTM Latin Seasoning, green onions and cilantro in a mixing bowl. Mix until a thick batter is formed. Cover and let stand 20 minutes.

Step 3: Divide the dough into 12 balls, greasing your hands so the dough doesn't stick. Flatten the balls into 1/2-inch-thick disks and rest in the fridge for 10 minutes.

Step 4: Heat oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat.

Step 5: Fry the arepas 3-5 minutes per side until golden brown.

Step 6: Carefully slice through the middle of the arepas and serve warm with a filling of vegetables, black beans, sour cream or just butter.
