DIRECTIONS

  • Place corn kernels and chicken stock in a blender or food processor and process until smooth.
  • Pour the cornmeal into a large bowl.
  • Stir in the sugar and sour cream.
  • Stir in corn mixture.
  • Add cheese.
  • Form mixture into a ball.
  • Separate dough into 8 pieces.
  • Roll each piece into a ball and then flatten into a pancake about 1/4-inch thick and 2 inches in diameter ( rub your fingers around the edge so that it maintains its thickness).
  • Preheat grill.
  • Brush the arepas lightly with the melted butter.
  • Grill the arepas until golden, about 3 minutes on each side. They should be toasted on the outside, but soft in the middle.
  • Let cool to room temperature.
  • Before serving, top with a spread of the farmer's cheese.
