What is an arepa? I wanted to know when we walked by a food truck selling them here in Denver.  Well, it’s the Venezuelans’ daily bread.  The little round bread is made of corn (somewhat similar to an English muffin).  It can be eaten as is, with butter, or really with anything that can act as a filling.   The ones from the food truck had mozzarella, salmon, baked beans, and many other fillings.
