Take small portions of the dough, about a fist size and roll the dough into smooth balls. Then place them in the middle of your Holstein 2 in 1 Multi Maker.
Close your maker (it is normal to need to press down on the lid firmly) and allow your arepa’s to bake for seven minutes.

After the arepa’s are nice and golden brown, cut them in half leaving the tail end together. Then scrape out some of the inside dough so that you have more space for your filling. We can never have too much filling! Load in your black beans and top off with your shredded white cheese. Yes, it’s ok if it is all overflowing! We think it tastes better that way.
