Hi Here's a simple recipe from my blog for Arepas de Choclo (sweet corn arepa)


3/4 cup milk
2 tablespoons butter
1 cup corn kernels (fresh or canned)
1 cup arepa flour
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
white farmers cheese or mozzarella cheese


Bring the milk to a boil in a small pan. Add butter and turn off heat so the mixture cools.

Process the corn kernels in a food processor or use a mortar and pestle.

In a large bowl, mix the ground corn, arepa flour, salt and brown sugar. Make a well in the center and gradually add the milk and butter mixture. Continue stirring until there are no lumps. Work the dough until it is smooth and sticky. Divide the dough into 4 equal pieces.

Form the dough into 4 hamburger sized flat patties.

Add some butter or cooking oil to a hot frying pan or griddle. Cook the arepas for about 5 minutes on each side or until golden brown.

To serve, butter the arepa and add a piece of white farmers cheese or mozzarella on top.

This is arepa flour:
