  • Summary

    Pera learned the art of arepas from his sister-in-law. Now, they're his easy Sunday meal of choice, packed with leftovers or farm-fresh produce. "My wife is a surgeon and works even longer hours than I do," he says, "so brunch is now my favorite meal to cook for her." These are some of Pera's go-to fillings—but anything tastes good in an arepa.

    Ingredients

    • 2 cups arepa flour (precooked cornmeal)
    • 2 teaspoons kosher salt
    • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
    • Desired fillings (such as shredded cooked chicken or pork, stewed black beans with cheese and lime, corn salad with onion and fresh herbs; for serving)
    • Lime wedges (for serving)
