1. In a medium bowl add water & slowly mix in flour. Mix well. Form eight dough balls with your hands, then smash into discs about 1 inch thick.
  2. Lightly coat a medium skillet with cooking spray & heat over medium. Add dough & cook 6-7 minutes per side until toasted on both sides. Set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, add avocados & mash with a fork. Add pepper, garlic, mayonnaise, chicken, cilantro & onion. Mix well.
  4. Cut arepas in half & serve stuffed with chicken & avocado mixture. Note: final inner texture is similar to that of a tamale.


For spicier Arepas, add 1 tsp of cayenne pepper.
