In a medium saucepan over medium-high heat, bring 4 cups water to a boil. Add bouillon, stirring until dissolved.

In medium bowl, stir together masarepa and salt. Add 2 ½ cups lukewarm water. Stir until combined; let sit 5 minutes. Using wet hand, knead dough until smooth. Divide dough into 8 portions. Form dough into small balls.
Heat oil in large comal or non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Add balls, leaving at least 3" space between dough. Using palm of hand, flatten balls to ½” thickness. Cook, flipping once, until golden brown on both sides, about 7 minutes total. Repeat with remaining dough.
Using knife, halve arepas horizontally without detaching end. Divide filling evenly among arepas.
Arepas taste best right off the stove when they’re steamy and soft. If you’re whipping up a big batch of arepas for a large gathering of family and friends, ensure the corncakes stay warm between batches by placing them on a parchment-lined baking sheet after they’re cooked and hold in 200˚F oven for up to 30 minutes.
