It is not a tortilla and it is not a piece of bread. However, arepas are just as popular in South America as bread is in North America. A staple in many South American diets, arepas are typically made of corn flour, water and salt. Arepas are eaten fresh but also freeze well for later use. Frozen arepas take little time to prepare and reheat quickly.

  1. 1

    Preheat the oven to 232 degrees Celsius.

  2. 2

    Slide a butter knife in between each arepa. Gently pull up and turn the knife over once the tip is in the middle of two arepas. Repeat until all the arepas are separated.

  3. 3

    Place the arepas on a foil-lined baking tray with enough room between them so they are not touching.

  4. 4

    Place the baking tray in the oven for 10 to 15 minutes to thoroughly heat the arepas.

Tips and warnings

  • Instead of baking arepas, place individual arepas in a toaster and toast until crispy.
  • Never use sharp knives to separate frozen arepas. The sharp point can cause breakage or holes.
