These Trader Joe’s arepas have been around a few years now and are one of my favorite snacks at TJs. Arepas are eaten all over South America with meat or cheese stuffed in between two corn cakes. This Trader Joe’s arepas version doesn’t have any meat in it, just yummy mozzarella cheese in between two traditional griddle corn cakes. You can technically make these in the microwave if you defrost them first, but you’ll be missing all of the crunchy goodness of the corn cakes if you don’t fry them up in a pan or atleast put them in the oven!…..…….

Trader Joe’s Griddle Cakes, Corn Arepas
Trader Joes arepas come in a box with two individually wrapped arepas which is nice if you don’t feel like having both at the same time. How does everyone like to eat these TJs arepas? If anyone has a really delicious dipping sauce or side that they like to have with these, let us know! As always, if someone has a yummy homemade arepas recipe they want to share, we would love to hear about it. And if you can’t make it out to TJs, give these items a try…..

Tried these, did not like. Way to sweet, not savory.
They aren’t supposed to be savory. It’s an arepa de chocolo, which is usually sweet in flavor.
Tell you what, if this guy I’ve been seeing brings me back these, the griddle cakes I got gonna get clappin
These check off a lot of boxes — very cheesy, slightly sweet, superbly crunchy with a gooey inside, easy to make, and they bring back fond ballpark memories. A great comfort food — paired with six steamed and plain Brussels sprouts, I feel good about making it a meal.
