Arepa is a popular Columbian dish made from unleavened cornmeal that's formed into a round patty and grilled like a pancake. It is usually stuffed with cheese, meat, eggs, or seafood. Many arepa recipes can be made with a panini press using corn bread or corn pancakes as a substitute. Or if you can find arepa corn meal in a store near you, why not try making them from scratch? The taste will be worth the effort.
