GAMEDAY GRUB Presented by SERRANO HAM AND QUESO FRESCO AREPAS METHOD INGREDIENTS 1 cup vegetable oil 1 cup masa harina 1 teaspoon adobo seasoning Pinch sugar 1 cup milk, warm 1 tablespoon bacon grease 3/4 cup queso blanco, grated, divided (plus 1/4 cup for topping) 1/3 cup chopped serrano ham 1 tablespoon minced jalapeno 1 teaspoon minced garlic Sour cream Salsa SERVES 4 All of these ingredients can be found at your local Publix. Heat oil in a large heavy bottom sauté pan over medium heat. Combine masa, adobo seasoning, and sugar in a large mixing bowl. Whisk in milk, using as few strokes as possible; add bacon grease, 1/2 cup Queso Blanco, ham, jalapeno, and garlic; stir to combine, being careful not to overwork dough. Form dough into small balls; form into smooth patties 4-inches in diameter, about 1/2-3/4 inch thick. Refrigerate until ready to use. Cook arepas in batches until golden, about 6 minutes per side, turning and lowering heat as necessary if browning to quickly; press down with a spatula to fl atten slightly. Remove and drain on paper towels; season lightly with adobo seasoning. Repeat with remaining batter, adding more oil as needed. Sprinkle each arepa with some of remaining cheese; serve hot with sour cream and salsa. Cooking with natural gas brings steady and even heat to make this dish even tastier. Natural gas also saves energy so you can spend more on the ingredients!
