Preparation time12 minutesCooking time 10 minutesCategoryEntranceKitchenColombianKeywordsSweet, creamy, food, hotFor how many people4 to 6ServingMediumCalories137Fat6.88 g


  • 1 and a half cups of shelled corn
  • 1 cup of cornmeal
  • a cup of milk
  • Three tablespoons of brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter
  • A pinch of baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon of salt


Step 1. Blend

The first thing you should do is take all the shelled corn and put it into the blender. Also, pour the milk there and start blending for a few seconds. Don’t worry if your dough looks a bit lumpy, because it’s the normal texture it should have due to the consistency of corn. Pour the resulting mixture into a bowl.

Step 2. Mix

Take the cornmeal and add it to the mixture you got in the previous step. Right there, pour the salt, the baking powder, the sugar, the melted butter and the egg. Start mixing everything very well so that the ingredients are integrated. In this step you must take into account that the mixture is not dry or very watery, it should fall from a spoon without much effort.

Step 3. Fry

Now, grease a non-stick pan with a little butter or oil and pour a tablespoon or two (depending on how big you want the arepa) of the dough on it and flatten it a little so that it is not so thick and it cooks very well. Normally, you should leave it for 5 minutes on one side and turn it over so that it cooks on the other side as well. Obviously, another way to know if it is already well cooked is to observe the color, because when it is golden brown and with a crust, then it means that you can turn it over or take it out. Ready, these chocolo arepitas will already be prepared and if you like you can put cheese on top to enjoy them. Bon Appetite.
