Whether you have Latin blood or not, there's no arguing when it comes to cuisine: Latin Americans know how to eat and how to prepare delicious meals. Whether you're a fan of maduros with your Cuban coffee or a cheesy empanada, there is something for everyone in Latin America.
One of the most popular meals in Colombia and Venezuela, however, is a savory corn bread that is as tasty as it is dense. Packed with meat, vegetables, cheese... you name it, these delicious Arepas have become popular around the world. Denver has quite a few restaurants that serve up Arepas, as well as other Venezuelan staples, including plenty of meat and rice.
