Arepas, You Rock!
Arepas vary from country to country, coming in different sizes and taste...
BUT CAN WE AGREE THEY ALL TASTE LIKE A PERFECT (MUCH BETTER VERSION) GRILLED CHEESE?!
Growing up in south Florida, these became one of my favorite mid-day snack. You can find these being sold at street vendors in highly-populated areas, or even sometimes at a local Latin food place. It's typically made with maize dough or cooked flour. I am more familiar with the arepas made with maize. Arepas are popular in South America, but can also be found in the caribbean countries like Panama, Puerto Rico, and the Dominican Republic.
The awesome thing about arepas is that you can fill them with all sorts of foods, including cheese, eggs, avocado, black beans, and even shredded meat! And because they are so versatile, you may even eat them vegan.
What's your favorite kind of arepa???

I love arepas, I even went to Colombia to try the "originals" and I was quite disappointed, so my best friend taught me how to make them.
Aww, really? That sucks :( ..I know there are variations of them. Maybe you'd like a traditional one from another Latin American country @CelinaGonzalez
@alywoah I'll definitely try different types, but seriously I don't know what Colombians are thinking when they make them. When they say arepitas, it means it's like a coin!
@alywoah girl they were so small that I had to ask for more, and then they were looking at me like if I were crazy. Also when I ordered coffee, they gave it to me in a tiny cup, so I asked for the biggest cup and they gave me a bowl lol
