      Hi dear Dienia!
      Your arepas are really great and worth to try!
      I used Swiss cheese and exactly sliced "Raclette" cheese. A great and new way to serve both!
      Note: If somebody prefers the cheese more melted, then put some seconds into the microwave!
      MMHH, you will see!

      Really enjoyed the addition of cottage cheese. These were cut in half and made a delicious breakfast treat served with avocado slices and locally produced asadero cheese. Will definately make these again. Made for Cleaning Up in the Diabetic Forum.
