    • Arepa de Choclo or 'Sweet Arepas' - A Latin Delight now available in New Zealand

      The “Arepa de Choclo or Chocolo”, also known as cachapa, chorreada, jojoto corn, or sweet corn tortilla, is a delicious traditional dish in Colombia, Costa Rica, Venezuela and Ecuador. Its preparation is similar to a pancake, or a common arepa, except that it is not made with wheat flour, but with sweet corn. We have imported to New Zealand the sweet cornflour mix ready here. It is usually accompanied with peasant cheese or curd They are a delight in every way and perfect for breakfast with scruble eggs and hot chocolate, or also as a small snack at any time of the day.

Over the years, this food was increasing its popularity, until it became known to all Colombians and the same in other countries in the region. Recipe and Preparation (Servings: 8-10) INGREDIENTS: 1 cup P.A.N. Sweet Corn Mix 1 cup water ¼ cup milk Vegetable oil or butter to grease the pan 1 egg Cheese (Mozarella works well) PREPARATION: Add P.A.N. Sweet Corn Mix along with the rest of the ingredients in a bowl. Mix using a whisk or fork until homogeneous. Let the batter rest for 6 minutes, stirring occasionally. If you desire a harder consistency, add an additional tablespoon of P.A.N. Sweet Corn Mix. If you prefer a lighter consistency, add an additional tablespoon of water or milk to the original recipe. Preheat a grill or pan and grease with vegetable oil or butter. Stir. Pour a portion of the mixture using a ladle and spread forming a disc. Cook for 3 minutes on each side until golden brown. Remove from heat. Grease the grill or pan with paper towels before cooking each additional serving. Serve with butter, cheese, ham, syrup, or any other side of your choice. TIPS: In this type of arepa, it is ideal to get a wet dough, you are not supposed to knead the dry dough like a regular arepa, so it is ok if the mix is not dry. Try doing it without water, replace that amount with milk. It is easier if you cook the arepas individually in a small pan Similar to Pancakes size We have here in New Zealand Sweet Corn Mix P.A.N. It is made with the best cobs and allows you to cook the typical sweet arepas recipes. This product is the ideal one to prepare typical recipes of sweet corn, cornbread, sweet rolls, sweet corn croquettes, cachapas and many others. Thanks for reading! La Tienda Colombiana
