Taken from epicurious .com and posted for ZWT. Originally published in Gourmet magazine - September 2007. "These tasty cornmeal cakes can be found grilled, baked, or fried in several Latin American countries. We love this Colombian version-the outside fries up crisp and golden, while the cheesy middle stays wonderfully moist. They can be eaten as a side dish or paired with hot chocolate for an afternoon snack."

  • Form more disks with remaining dough in same manner, transferring to wax-paper-lined surface.

This is a quick way to prepare arepas. Not exactly the taste of the traditional arepa, but quite close enough. Arepas can also be topped with tuna salad, chicken, ham and cheese, sautéed tomatoes and onions, and beef.

  • To make arepas: Pour water into large bowl. Add arepa corn flour, salt, oil, ½ cup of Jarlsberg cheese, and mix thoroughly to combine. Cover with a towel and let dough rest for five minutes.
  • Working with moist hands, remove about 3 tbsps worth of dough and flatten them between your palms. Add 1 tbsp of cheese in the middle, and top with a handful more dough, gently pressing to seal the cheese inside and form a patty about ¼ inch thick. If you’re after those perfectly shaped arepas, place each arepa ball between 2 sheets of wax paper or plastic wrap and flatten them to ¼ inch with a heavy cast iron pan. Repeat until you’re out of dough and cheese, transferring prepared arepas to a large platter.
  • Preheat your budare (special arepas pan), griddle or cast iron pan to high heat. Season with oil or butter. Place the arepas in the pan and cook about 5 minutes on each side, until you achieve golden-brown colour and a beautiful char in spots.
  • To serve arepas, cut them in half and put your favourite toppings inside. Drizzle with Colombian pico de gallo and aji.

25 CLASSIC COLOMBIAN RECIPES - INSANELY GOOD
From insanelygoodrecipes.com

  • Colombian Style Powdered Beef. Carne de polvo, or Colombian style powdered beef, is a classic dish from the Andean region of Colombia. It’s made with flank steak that’s boiled, cut into chunks, and processed until it reaches a powdered consistency.
  • Bandeja Paisa. Hailed from the Antioquia department, bandeja paisa isn’t for anyone on a strict diet. If you’re on a cheat day, this is a must-have high-calorie meal.
  • Colombian Beans. Not a fan of beans? Here’s a dish will change your mind. This Colombian bean soup is delicious, tummy-warming, and filling when served over rice.
  • Colombian Chicharron. Pieces of pork belly with meat are fried until golden and crispy. The interesting part is you don’t need oil to cook this dish.
  • Colombian Green Plantains. Green plantains are smashed into thin slices, lightly salted, and fried until brown. This is, hands-down, one of the easiest Colombian recipes out there.
  • Hogao. I’ve already mentioned hogao in several previous recipes, so maybe you’re thinking it’s a staple of Colombian cuisine. In that case, you’re right!
  • Aguapanela. Auguapanela is a refreshing summer beverage made with water and panela. If you’re not familiar with the latter, it’s a solid block of sugarcane that tastes like brown sugar.
  • Colombian Fried Fish. This Colombian recipe uses a small tropical fish called mojarra. It’s typically found in South America and the Caribbean. So if you can’t get your hands on it, try tilapia or red snapper.
  • Colombian Coffee. Coffee lovers, here comes Colombia’s version of the classic hot drink. Colombians like it sweet and light, with a nutty finish. The recipe requires aguapanela for the brewing process, which brings a wonderfully sweet taste to the coffee.
  • Arepas. Arepa is a Colombian street food made with sweet cornmeal dough that’s deep-fried until crispy. It’s tender and fluffy on the inside, giving you a beautiful combination of textures.
