So delicious and easy for parties! We had at my son's christening luncheon at Aunt Sister's house.

Nothing brightens a Monday like coming home to a mini cooking session organized by your fabulous nanny! Mrs. Elsy brought these Colombian treats, corn cakes called Arepas, to us last week for breakfast. Today she came with all of the ingredients to teach me!
1 1/2 cups corn meal (hers is from a Tiendo Latino)
1 1/2 cups warm/hot water
~ 1 tsp salt
~ 1/2 - 3/4 cup Latino Queso, shredded, from grocery
Mix all ingredients in a bowl with hands into a dough. Should get to the point of not being sticky but able to be formed into balls as shown above. Flatten slightly.
Warm pan on stove over medium. Rub a little butter on the pan and get hot. Cook arepas for 5-15 minutes per side, until golden brown. Serve warm.
