Since I discovered that the arepa dough (not the filling, but the dough) can be the vehicle for my kids to eat vegetables, I have not stopped developing new recipes.

And the proof is these plantain arepas stuffed with grilled cheese, whose dough also has red bell pepper, leeks and Cacique® Queso Blanco cheese, in addition to the corn arepa flour.

These arepas, which are perfect for breakfast or Sunday brunch, combine the sweet flavor of the plantains and red bell pepper, with the savory cheese. The perfect combo.

To make them even better, they are filled with grilled cheese. They are a treat in my house that even the picky eaters can’t resist.

I hope you like my recipe.
