If there's anything I feel proud of, it's being Colombian. We Colombians are known for our love for our country, traditional dishes and culture. And even though I'm far away, I'm always looking for new ways to stay connected to my traditions. That's why I decided to honor my country with today's recipe and prepare an arepa with shredded chicken and hogao sauce. It's famous in my house! I've yet to meet a Colombian who doesn't know what an arepa or hogao is because we all grew up eating these Colombian staples. But if you're not Colombian, here's your opportunity to taste our culture and tradition in one delicious dish! MORE + LESS -
