6 servings (serving size: 1 topped arepa)

Venezuelan street vendors stuff thick arepas with rice or eggs. Our recipe creates thin arepas, which are best topped with beans, salsa, and cheese.

How to Make It

Arrange arepas on a platter. Spoon 1/4 cup Simple Black Beans onto each arepa. Top each serving with 1 tablespoon Avocado Salsa and 1 1/2 tablespoons queso fresco.

This is an all time favorite in our house. Each separate section is delicious. It takes time but it worth it. Make extra arepas and pile high with the toppings.
