Arepa Sandwich Sliders

Over the past few weeks I've been experimenting with P.A.N. Cornmeal, a popular ingredient in South American kitchens, and having fun making new recipes along the way! 

This week I've used the cornmeal in its traditional role - to make traditional flatbread known as Arepas.  Here's how I did it!

I participated in an Ambassador Program on behalf of Influence Central for P.A.N. Cornmeal. I received product samples as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.

Making Arepa flatbreads is a really simple process, that is a lot of fun for the kids to help make.  I love the versatility of how they can be used!


2 1/2 cups water
2 cups P.A.N. cornmeal
1 teaspoon salt


Pour the water into a bowl, and gradually stir in the salt and cornmeal with a wooden spoon.

Once everything is mixed, knead the dough into a ball and let it rest for about 3 minutes.

The next steps are so much fun for little hands.  The dough gets a texture that holds together nicely and isn't sticky, which makes it perfect for kids!  First, roll the dough into small balls.

This recipe should make exactly 10 balls.

Then, flatten each ball into a pancake shape - About 3 inches in diameter.

Place the rounds into an oiled pan and cook on medium for 5 minutes.  Flip them, and let them cook for another 5 minutes.

Once they're done, they can be used in a lot of ways.  As a bread side, as bread for a sandwich, or if you open them up (like a pita) they can be stuffed with your favorite mixture.

For my summer Arepa Sandwich Sliders, I like to open them up and stuff with a slice of sharp cheddar cheese, a slice of tomato, and a pinch of fresh arugula.  

TIP: They're best when they're served hot out of the pan!  Or, for a picnic, make them in advance then pop them onto a hot grill for a couple of minutes so that the Arepa gets warm and the cheese just barely starts to melt.

What would you love to fill your Arepa with?
