For me Colombian cuisine reminds me of my grandmother’s kitchen where she prepared delicious traditional plates  for us  that forever will define how i cook for my family today.

September is Hispanic heritage month and we are creating recipes to celebrate this wonderful Event, Today i present my grandmother’s rendition of  “Arepas de Choclo or Corn Kernels Cakes”  with ingredients that are available in the city where i live.

The recipe is easy to prepare and economic for the budget minded, You can pair the Arepas with hot chocolate and fried eggs.


  • 2 cans of Canned Corn
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 lb package shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1 cup yellow or white cornmeal
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • tablespoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt


  • Place corn in the blender, add the egg, flour for arepas, milk, sugar and salt.
  • Blend well, should fit a smooth consistency, but not too liquid, if this is the case, add a little more flour.
  • Now place the mixture in a bowl, and pour 3/4 of the shredded cheese and mix very well, and at this point the dough should have a thick consistency to form the arepas. If the mixture is too liquid, add a little more flour, or use a tablespoon to place the mixture in a hot pan, and let it cook and them flip.
  • Place the arepas de choclo in the pan with a little butter, and fried until golden brown 2-3 minutes, turn the arepa, place some shredded cheese on top once it melts the dish is complete.

Remove from pan and are ready to be enjoyed with your favorite beverage.
