Puerto Rican arepas are different from their better-known South American counterparts, which are made with corn flour. In Puerto Rico, the Island of Enchantment, arepas are a kind of fried bread made with wheat flour.
These arepas are perfect for a delicious Puerto Rican breakfast. You can make them sweet or savory, plain or stuffed. It's up to you.
The basic arepa recipe calls for flour, butter, salt, and water. I, however, added some garlic powder to give it another flavor. You can combine this recipe with other ingredients like onions, peppers, and herbs, and serve them with beef, salted cod, or soup.
You can also use the same dough and stuff the arepas to your liking. Additionally, you can use the basic recipe (without the garlic) and add sugar or coconut to make delicious sweet arepas.
