If you’ve been following along with my recipes this year, then you’ve probably seen the delicious Curly’s BBQ recipes I’ve been sharing. I love working with Curly’s because it’s a brand that Angeline and I have been buying for years! What’s not to love? You can find them at pretty much every grocery store in the refrigerated meal aisle, there are plenty of varieties, and they make for quick and easy meals for busy families…or in my case, single people who don’t want to spend a ton of time in the kitchen when they’re just cooking for one! I love the product on its own, but I also love getting creative and coming up with recipes using Curly’s BBQ, like my recipes for BBQ Chicken Sliders, Enchiladas with Mango Salsa – and most recently, this BBQ Arepas recipe!
If you’ve never had Arepas before, then you’re totally missing out! Arepas are pretty common at many fairs and festivals, but being in Miami, it’s an everyday sort of food for us! Arepas are made with ground maize – cornmeal, basically – or flour, and I believe it originated in Colombia.
For this BBQ Arepas Recipe, I used a store-bought Arepa because hello! We’re taking parties here, and who wants to spend all day cooking when you’re preparing for a big party! There is enough to do as it is!
The whole point of having a party is to have fun, and while some do enjoy cooking, it shouldn’t be required to spend all day in the kitchen. This BBQ Arepas Recipe is quick and easy, and very filling too! It can be served as a finger food, or during a sit down dinner, it’s all up to you!
Party BIG with this BBQ Arepas Recipe!
- Cole Slaw
- Curly's Pulled Pork
- Simply heat the Arepas according to package directions, do the same with the Curly's Pulled Pork. Top the Arepas with as much or as little pulled pork as you like, and you can serve the cole slaw on the side or on top of the Arepa too!
