Arepas can be found in Colombia, Venezuela, and Panama and regional variations abound. On a basic level it's a flat, round, pancake of sorts made from cornmeal or flour. Some arepas are thick and sort of poufy while others are thin and crunchy. They can be grilled, baked, boiled, or fried. You can put a topping like meat or cheese on top or split them in the middle and stuff them like a sandwich.
