  1. Mix the ingredients in a medium-size bowl and mix well until you can form a ball.
  2. Divide the dough into 4 even balls.
  3. Dip the ball in cold water, so it doesn’t stick, and place it on plastic wrap. Fold the plastic wrap over the ball and press down with a plate. Make them as thick or thin as you like. Repeat this with each ball of dough.
  4. In a pan warm up a little bit of oil and fry each arepa for about 2-4 minutes on each side, or until the edges start to brown a little bit.
  5. Enjoy!
