Arepa Reina Pepiada- Corn Cake Filled with Shredded Chicken
April 25, 2020
I love going to Florida because there are so many Latin restaurants. We often strategically plan our meals around activities so we can try them all. Orlando has some of the best Venezuelan and Colombian bakeries and restaurants that I have tried in the U.S. When my husband and I go to Florida for vacation, it definitely becomes a food marathon so I can show him as many delicious things that I grew up eating. Reina Pepiada was the first type of arepa that my husband tried and he loved it. I knew that arepas were close to his heart when he asked me to go back to the food truck the next day.
Filled arepas are so delicious, you can make it as healthy as you want. This arepa is originally from Venezuela and it is one of my favorites. It has chicken, avocado, green peas, and mayo: What’s not to love!
