Arepas

FROM IVAN ARIAS & MOLLY DRANE OF DONDE THIAGO

Corn griddle cakes are similar to English muffins. They can be grilled or deep fried in coconut oil, sliced and stuffed with your favorite ingredients. Try shredded chicken, pork or beef tossed with one of the No Joke Smoke BBQ Sauces, black beans, fried sweet potatoes or plantains, sliced red onion and crumbled farmer’s cheese. They also make a nice breakfast with fried bacon and cheese or even jam and jelly
