Let your imagination guide you to the perfect arepa

Yes, cornmeal patties also known as arepas are well-known in South-America but also in Curacao. Originally from Venezuela these cornmeal patties are easy to make and the fun part is that you can stuff them with a lot of different ingredients. Think of avocado, beef, chicken, cheese, rice, beans and so on. Today we will be making the easiest variation which is the cornmeal patty with cheese. Simple but super delicious.


  • 1½ cups GOYA® Masarepa (pre-cooked white or yellow corn flour)
  • 1½ cups warm water
  • 2 oz. mozzarella cheese, grated
  • 2 tbsp. milk
  • Pinch of salt
  • Butter for coating skillet

Combine the corn flour, water, cheese, milk and salt, mixing thoroughly. Let mixture stand for five minutes. Form 18 disk shaped arepas, each about 3 inches in diameter, 1/4" thick. Heat a lightly buttered skillet over medium heat. Cook the Arepas in batches until crispy and golden brown on each side.
