      Thus far this is my favorite recipe of the whole CQ 2014 tour! I used a combination of freshly grated sharp white cheddar and parmigiano-reggiano and a tortilla press to form them. Served with salpicon, plain quinoa and peach slices. A KA food processor was great help in blending the ingredients. Enjoyed by all! Next time I definitely need to double the recipe!

      Easy to make, and good to eat. I used romano. The dough can be made a little ahead of time, and prepared as needed. This is a hearty bread, so it's good if you're working and need energy, but smaller serving sizes might be more suitable on a more sedentary day.

      OMG OMG OMG! This is too easy to be this good. I have made pupusas before, and they are good, but you need to have been making them since birth to make them right, I think. THESE I made right the first time. Or at least they looked good, they tasted delicious, and I had NO problems getting them made. The manchego was really nice, and I really enjoyed stacking the arepas with tomato slices and avocado slices - yum! I made a half batch, which made 15 crunchy little arepas, plenty for me, my roommie, and my two kids. I ended up turning them a total of four times, at about 3-4 minutes each time, and they came out perfect, golden with some darker spots of brown, but no burning.
