This is not the traditional recipe for Arepas. You would usually want to use a pre-cooked white corn flour like P.A.N but since this brand is not available in all the major supermarkets I use MASECA which is a Mexican corn flour brand and I actually loved the results. To make sure the corn is cooked through I like to bake it in the oven for an additional 10 more minutes on high heat.
What you put inside is up to you. The Arepas are very versatile and accept everything. Having said that, it is common to use black beans, avocado, salsa, sour cream and your favorite recipe of ground beef.
