~Scrambled eggs, cheese and ketchup- pile it up but before you do make sure you put butter on it
~Calentao- whatever you had the night before (chicken, beef and even fish) mix it with rice, throw an egg into the mix and boom!
~Ham, cheese and crackers with any flavor jelly
~Butter and salt. Simple and to the point.
~Tuna- mix a can of tuna with ketchup, mayo, pepper. Butter the arepa, add cheese then spread the tuna, add some avocado -- fire!
~Cheese, ham, fried egg, and a big slice of pineapple.. heaven.
~Shrimp- defrost, cook. Mix with mayo and ketchup. Butter, cheese, pile on the shrimp and dive in
~Ketchup and lime. Say what? yes.. if you are using it as a side dish, get a small plate, drop some ketchup and lime.. mix it. Break off a piece of arepa and dip it in there.
~Shredded beef. Enough said... any style will go good on top.
~Pork cooked with fruit.. the next day. Yum...
~Condensed milk. Yes.. I took it there.
**Note: they usually come frozen if you buy them at the store, so you need that little contraption you see above. Set on high heat and place arepa on one side until it starts to change color. DO NOT walk away because it can burn!. Flip it to the other side and repeat process. If you like it crispy, just flip it for a little longer.
Ok so I think you get my point here. Give them a try, there are plenty of recipes online on how to make them with flour if that is all you have available. If making them is too hard, find them in your local market and even online. Have fun, you can pretty much put anything on these.
