In Venezuela, arepas, or mini round corncakes, are a staple for breakfast, at dinner tables to accompany the main dish (much like rolls of bread), or eaten as an any-time snack. They can be eaten plain, served with sauce, or stuffed with a variety of fillings. Here, we stuff it with a traditional Venezuelan filling of black beans, known as caraotas negras. Simple and delicious, this national dish of Venezuela is a must try!
