Let's Make It
1
Mix water and salt in large bowl. Gradually add cornmeal, mixing after each addition until blended. Add cream cheese and red pepper; mix well. Let stand 5 min.
2
Divide dough into 6 equal pieces; shape each into ball. Flatten each ball into 5-inch patty, rounding edge with a little water, if necessary.
3
Heat griddle to medium-high heat. Add patties (arepas); cook 10 to 12 min. on each side or until golden brown on both sides. Cut arepas in half horizontally; fill evenly with ham, Singles, tomatoes and dressing.
Kitchen Tips
Tip 1
Variation
Prepare and shape dough as directed. Cook patties (arepas) on griddle on medium-high heat 5 min. on each side or until lightly browned on both sides. Place arepas on foil-covered baking sheet. Bake at 350°F for 12 to 15 min. or until cooked through. Split and fill arepas as directed.
Tip 2
Food Facts
To talk about arepas is to talk about Venezuela. Arepas are served for breakfast, lunch and dinner at any Venezuelan table, usually plain with butter and Apure (Venezuelan cheese). They can be grilled, fried or boiled. Arepa dough can also be used to make other Venezuelan delicacies, such as empanadas and hallacas (Venezuelan tamales).
