    Chef Christine's Note:

    I only saw recipes for Venezuelan and Ecuadorean Arepas so I thought I'd share this one. It's from my Colombian friend.

      I hadn't made these in years. I made a double recipe and made some small ones and two large ones. The small ones were given to little ones and a small amount of maple syrup put on them. The large ones were cut in wedges and served with hot spicy meats. I used farmer cheese the closest to queso blanco.Brings back memories and easy on the budget to make. Thanks for posting.
