Arepas can be described as a type of open-faced sandwich made with ground corn or masa. They are popular in South American countries like Columbia and Venezuala, with characteristics that can vary in color, size, fillings, and even region.
Typically, arepas are topped or filled with different types of meat, cheese, eggs, tomatoes, or even seafood depending on the time of day they are consumed. They can be fried or even baked, but the easiest way to make an arepa is in a combi oven.
