In celebration for the release of of the Encanto Blu-Ray we decided to make Arepas con queso. I grew up in Colombia eating these delicious arepas. You can eat them by themselves, just spread some butter on top of the, or you can eat them with meats or veggies on top of them.
If you were paying attention, in the movie, Mirabel's mom (Julieta) has the power of healing people with food. In one scene she heals Mirabel with an arepa con queso. Arepas are very popular in Colombia, we eat them alone or with a variety of dishes. Arepas are to Colombians what tortillas are to Mexicans.
