Instructions

  1. In a large bowl, combine the arepa flour, salt, water, feta and oil. Stir to combine. Add avocado mash and stir until fully mixed. Let sit for 5 minutes so the dough absorbs all the water.
  2. While the dough sits, slice green onion and dice tomatoes.
  3. Heat a cast iron skillet on medium-high heat with oil for cooking the arepas. Pinch off 3 tablespoon-size pieces of dough, roll into a ball and then flatten with the palms of your hands to make small discs until all of the dough is used.
  4. Place four discs in hot skillet and let them form a “crust”, approximately 3-4 minutes. Flip and finish cooking until golden brown. (TIP: Once cooked, let them rest on a cookie sheet so arepas don't sweat and get soggy on a plate.)
  5. In a separate pan, heat oil on medium heat and fry the onions, tomato, salt and pepper. Once softened, add eggs and scramble. Use spatula to move eggs in pan so they cook evenly. Scramble until desired consistency.
  6. Evenly distribute eggs onto 4 plates. Add one arepa to each plate and serve.
