An arepa is the daily bread of Venezuela handed down generations from the Timoto-Cuicas (a local tribe). Made of white cornmeal, water and salt, the dough is formed into a patty, grilled, baked, split open and stuffed with a variety of ingredients like a sandwich. Arepa styles in Venezuela vary by region.

While not American, arepas are becoming quite popular throughout the United States, with several food trucks popping up around the country specializing in this Venezuelan delicacy. 
A flatbread made with ground corn, an arepa can be cooked in a variety of ways, including grilling, baking, and frying.

 The patty is then split open and stuffed with a variety of delicious ingredients from meats to cheeses to vegetables. The Washington D.C. food truck, Arepa Zone, is a popular spot to try this delicacy.
