A beloved Venezuelan dish, Arepas Reina Pepiada combines a freshly griddled corn cake with a zesty chicken/turkey filling.
In a large mixing bowl combine filling ingredients together and mix thoroughly.
Set filling aside in the fridge
In a separate mixing bowl combine the arepa ingredients together and mix until a dough is formed.
Apply a small amount of vegetable oil to your hands so the dough does not stick.
Pull off a piece of dough and shape it into balls slightly smaller than your fist.
After you have your dough balls heat a skillet to medium-high heat and add a few TBS of oil or bacon grease.
Flatten your dough balls to about half an inch thick and place them in the skillet.
Cook on each side for 2 minutes or until brown and place on a plate to cool.
Carefully cut the arepa open using a knife and spoon in the filling.
Garnish with some lime juice and chopped cilantro.
