Venezuelan arepas are crispy on the outside and soft and fluffy on the inside! Stuff them with your favorite ingredients and sauces.
In order to make arepas, you will need to buy precooked cornmeal, also known as masarepa. It comes in both white and yellow, the only difference being the color of the flour. Look for harina de maiz blanco precocida (refined, pre-cooked white corn flour) near the bottom of the package. The most common brand is P.A.N. and it comes in a yellow bag with a blue label. Do not buy American cornmeal or masa harina.
