Making Arepas with Superior
Taste and Texture
Tradition holds that the most popular Arepas, Arepas de Maize (corn), are also the most versatile. Delicias Andinas Arepas owe their superior taste and fluffy texture to premium white and yellow corn grown in the United States.
But before the corn can hope to become an Arepa, it undergoes a very labor-intensive process. First, we break the corn into Maiz Trillao (corn grit) and shell and de-germ it. Next, we cook the corn grit, grind it to masa (dough), flatten it, and cut it into patties. Finally, the arepas are grilled a la perfección.
