    Chocolatl's Note:

    This is a bit easier than the other grilled arepa recipe I posted, as it uses premade arepas. Some supermarkets and Latino markets carry these, in the dairy section. They can also be found online. Adapted from Steven Raichlen's Planet Barbecue! The salsa ingredients can be chopped in a food processor. NOTE: I have used "corn cakes" as the ingredient name, because the software does not recognize arepas as an ingredient.
