Few things in life give me more joy than eating arepa with fresh cheese for breakfast, so why not make them as an appetizer? Arepa chips topped with queso fresco and Colombian chorizo are delicious and addictive :). I could not stop eating these little things.

Ay madre, qué rico tiene que estar esto... ñam!
I love dishes like this. It would've been perfect for last night's supper. We made all kinds of appetizers last night. 🙂 Happy New Year, Erica!
How delicious Erica! Since I adore chorizo...there is a market near me that has a wide selection of south American and central American cheese, so I need to play!

Thank you everyone for your comments!
What a delicious appetizer or meal for me, lol!! Looks wonderful 🙂 Have a great New Year Erica, I'm so happy to have found your blog and met you! Un besote!!
I wouldn't be able to stop eating these either. Sounds great. I bought some chorizo while traveling up north. It was much cheaper up north than here in KY. I can't wait to use it.
oh looks good happy new year

What a fun idea to make them appetizer size--they look delicious with the chorizo.
These look so good. Hope the New Year brings you and your family health, prosperity and happiness.
Interestingly enough, fewer things make me happier than eating arepas. Period. These little corn cake sandwiches sound like heaven! You can't beat a good arepa.
Thank you guys!
Oh I've never had this before but I'd love to enjoy one now!
Sí, sí...they definitely look addictive!
So the Columbian chorizo is more like Spanish than Mexican, yes? I am guessing this form the pictures since it looks more like cured meat instead of the bulk sausage.
Great looking appetizer!
Chris- We have both kinds(dried or fresh chorizo).
YUM! I adore this post...and I want to eat my screen (but I bet it wouldn't taste as good as it looks)!! Delicious...Happy New Year, Erica 🙂
this sounds fabulous! anything with cheese and chorizo has to be all sorts of good!
Oh my - this looks amazing and I need to get my hands on some chorizo pronto!
Thank you everyone for visiting my site 🙂
I made these appetizers last weekend for my Colombian niece and her husband and they loved them,. Thank you so much.
Eso no es Chorizo! [:
