I looked up Arepa and I ended up on wikipedia: The arepa a corn-based bread from the northern Andes in South America , now spread to other areas in modern Latin American countries. Arepas are most popular in Colombia and Venezuela.
Says also that The arepa is a flat cornmeal patty which is grilled, baked, or fried. The characteristics of the arepa vary with local culture. The size and flatness may vary according to the region. They are stuffed with cheeses, vegetables, or any other desired stuffing. Thanks Wikipedia!
