These delicious arepas with cheese, are that type of arepas that you can find in street food stalls. They are usually places where they only sell this type of arepas. Where the seller takes his prepared dough and only heats the iron, add the arepas with cheese and place them to roast in front of his customers to eat them hot.
From time to time I like to go out and buy some, even to take home. What I love is the cheese inside, well, although the cheese mixed with the dough, because when you bite the cheese stretches.
So if you are thinking of setting up a business of arepas with cheese, I will share the recipe for you to start trying at home and become an expert so you can sell them.
I hope you enjoy preparing these arepas with cheese and don’t forget to share them.Español
