Arepa Hawaiana (Hawaiian-Style Arepa)

Since I am a stay home mom, I am always thinking of new things to make for easy lunches. Arepas are always a delicious and simple meaI and are great for lunch. I make the arepas ahead of time so I only have to assemble them when it’s time for lunch. This Hawaiian-Style Arepa tasted wonderful and was full of flavor. Buen provecho!

(2 servings)

2 cooked arepas
1 cup diced pineapple
1 cup sliced baked ham
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese


  1. Place the arepas on a baking sheet and preheat oven to 450 degrees F.
  2. Add the mozzarella cheese evenly over each arepa, leaving a 1/2-inch border. Add the ham and pineapple on top of the cheese.
  3. Bake about 7 minutes until cheese is melted.

        Isn’t masarepa cornflour not cornmeal? I know Goya calls their masarepa pre-cooked (whatever they mean by that) cornmeal, but if I recall correctly, they grind it as finely as cornflour.
