Arepas Con Chocolo (Fresh Corn Tortillas)

Total Time
Prep 30 mins
Cook 15 mins

You can also put the fresh corn (removed from the cob) into a blender (DON’T use canned corn), add some salt, and some corn starch to reduce the moisture consistency. Then you can prepare the arepas the same way you would prepare pancakes in a pan.


  1. Remove the corn from the cob and grind.
  2. Knead it until it forms a firm ball.
  3. With your hand form into several flat tortillas (4 to 6 inches diameter, 1/8 inch thick) and roast over a low charcoal fire or on a wire rack over the burner of your stove.
  4. Serve hot with butter and fresh white cheese.
