Hamburguesa de Arepa (Arepa Burger)


Hamburguesa de Arepa (Arepa Burger)

The idea for this Arepa Burger came to me one night while lying in bed, and I could not wait to get up the next day to make it! Arepas are versatile and can pretty much be filled or topped with anything you have on hand. Arepas always come to the rescue when I am hungry and desperate for a quick meal.

I have created several arepa dishes with various toppings and fillings, but until now, I never thought of using them in a burger. I hope you enjoy this burger as much as I did!

Buen provecho!

    This is a wonderful gluten-free alternative to a traditional hamburger! I’ll try these out this weekend.
