2 cup masarepa flour

2 teaspoons salt

0.5 teaspoons pepper

1 ounces butter soft

2 cup hot water

1 cup mixed mushrooms cleaned

0.25 pounds Castelinhos cheese cut into small slices


Place all of the arepas ingredients into a bowl or food processor and mix thoroughly. While mixing, add the hot water. Put dough into bowl covered with plastic wrap for 15-20mins. Start making mushroom filling while dough sets. Divide into small balls & then flatten out with your hand. Add a little butter/oil to frying pan, add arepas and cook until golden brown on both sides. Let cool so you can handle them. Once cook, cut a pocket into the arepas and fill with cheese & mushroom mixture. Place filled arepas back in pan and heat until cheese is melty.

Mushroom Filling

Slice mushrooms and place into sautee pan. Drizzle oil, salt and pepper onto mushrooms and mix thoroughly. Cook until brown. Let cool, place in large bowl and adjust seasoning. Cut 1/4lb castelinhos cheese into chunks & add to mushroom mixture.
