Arepas de Chocolo - Fresh Corn Tortillas

Corn on the cob

Remove the corn from the cob and grind. Knead it until it forms a firm ball. With your hand, form into several round, flat tortillas (3-6 mm thick) and roast over a low charcoal fire or on a wire rack over the burner of the stove. Serve hot with butter, salt and white cheese.

You can also put the corn in the blender (don't use canned corn), add some salt, and some corn starch to reduce the watery consistency. Then, you can prepare the arepas the same way you would prepare pancakes on a pan. Once again, serve hot with butter, salt and white cheese.
