Chipa Guazu recipe

Today I had an super delicious Chipa Guazu…it seems that i spend most of the time eating, jajaja, well perhaps its true, I know there are things that i wont be able to eat when I’m back so I’m taking advantage of the beauties of the paraguayan cuisine.

Chipa Guazu has no equivalent, its like a creamy corn cheese bread

I personally like the Chipa Guazu more than the sopa paraguaya because it is more creamy, the sopa paraguaya is a bit to dry for me…and I love the chipa guazu will lots of cheese and onions, yummy!

So here it goes, a very easy recipe, enjoy!

  • 3 chopped onions
  • 1 kilo of chopped corn that’s around 2 pounds corn
  • half cup of pig fat that’s for the original recipe but you can replace that with oil, butter or margarine
  • 300grams of cheese (if you don’t find the paraguayan cheese you can use uruguayan cheese or mozzarella, or maybe some soft white cheese)
  • 5 beated eggs
  • half cup of
  • 1 cup of milk
  • salt and pepper

Saute the onions on the fat, butter or oil then add the milk and let cook for 10 more minutes, then add the cheese, eggs, salt, pepper and chopped corn and mix well, then pour the mix into a form and put it into a hot oven until the top of the Chipa Guazu turns golden brown…

Then tell me how you liked it ;)

    Hi Kelly
    No, sopa paraguaya is different more dry, more like a corn bread, some people prefer sopa paraguaya, i prefer chipa guazu, i will get the recipe for sopa paraguaya very soon, it is also delicious but the consistency is other, chipa is more like a soufle and sopa is more like a corn bread….bur for the sopa you need harina de maiz, that sometimes is hard to find in other places. Saludos!

    Do you have the recipe for Chipa made with cheese? My ex mother in law used to make it with her home made cheese, and tapioca starch. She has passed away now, she was from Paraguay, and had many wonderful foods she would cook.
