Arepas Puertorriqueñas Fritas

arepas-puertorriquenas

I have been eating these amazing Arepas (fried dough) since I was a little girl. My grandmother would fry them for my family and I every time she would come down to Miami to visit. Finally, I grew up and decided to try to make them myself but come to find out my grandmother didn’t have a recipe for it. She would eye the ingredients and say “put a little bit of this and a little bit of that” which obviously doesn’t work out for us lol so I decided to take her “little bit of this and little bit of that” and try to make a recipe out of it. It literally took me like 3 tries! But I finally got it! Please enjoy a holiday recipe which has turned into a whenever I want to make them recipe at my home! I dip them in coffee or have them on the side of Asopao, Soup or dipped in condense milk. Oh yea, no need to imagine it, just cook it! Soft in the inside and crispy on the outside! So delicious…
