1/2 cup shredded Mexican-blend cheese

  • Remove pork from packaging. Drain (reserve jus for another use, if desired); place pork roast in large saucepan (wash hands).

Steps

  1. Stir sofrito and tomatoes into saucepan; bring to a boil on medium-high, stirring to break up meat.
  2. Reduce heat to medium; cook and stir 7–8 minutes or until thoroughly heated. Meanwhile, preheat medium sauté pan on medium 2–3 minutes. Remove pan from heat and coat with cooking spray. Add arepas; cook 2–3 minutes on each side or until thoroughly heated.
  3. Transfer arepas to serving platter. Top with pork mixture and sprinkle with cheese. Squeeze a little lime juice over the tamale mixture to add a touch of fresh flavor, if desired. Serve.

  2. Place potato slices in single layer on grill and close lid; grill 3–4 minutes or until tender when pierced with a fork. Repeat as needed with remaining slices.
