A common street food in South America, arepas are grilled corn cakes that are stuffed with meats or cheese. Trader Joe's version has mozzarella cheese in the center.

Trader Joe's Corn & Cheese Arepas Nutrition Info

Heating instructions are given for both stovetop and oven. I chose the stovetop. As usual with Trader Joe's frozen items, I found these needed more cook time. Following the defrost and cooking instructions, the cheese in the center wasn't completely melted. With a couple of more minutes in the pan, they were cooked perfectly.

He (Mark) says: I was surprised by how much I enjoyed these. Great size for a small meal accompanied by a side dish. Preparation was easy. Easy peasy and plenty cheesy. Season with a little sea salt on top. If you like that fresh corn flavor, give these a try.

Overall rating: 4 of 5 stars


She (Bridget) says: I loved these. Loved. Satisfyingly savory and a little sweet, one arepa is a perfect accompaniment alongside a salad. The cheese is melty, but it's not too much or a complete mess. The corn cakes taste of, well, corn, and cook up a little crispy on the outside while remaining fluffy on the inside. I did add a sprinkling of flaky sea salt (this Falksalt, to be exact). It needed just a touch. I also loved the arepas with a bit of Cholula. 

Overall rating: 5 of 5 stars


Would we buy these again? Yep. Heading back to grab more this week!

This is not an Arepa. This is called Cachapa.
