  • 550 grams of cassava flour (4-½ cups)
  • 50 grams of cornmeal (⅓ cup + 1 tablespoon)
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1-1 / 2 teaspoon of salt
  • 4 tablespoons icing sugar
  • 400 grams of grated or sliced ​​Paraguay cheese (4 cups) I used Trebol brand
  • 50 grams of Parmesan cheese (½ cup)
  • 100 grams of butter soften (6 tablespoons) I used Trebol brand
  • 3 eggs
  • 100 grams of orange juice (almost ½ cup)


  • Preheat the oven to 232°C/450°F and grease a baking sheet.
  • In a large bowl, add cassava flour, cornmeal, baking powder, salt, sugar, two kinds of cheese and butter. Mix with a spoon.
  • Beat the eggs with an electric mixer for 3 minutes high, or until frothy. Add the beaten eggs and orange juice to the dry cassava mixture. Mix with your hands and knead for 3 to 4 minutes, or until the dough is smooth.
  • Divide the dough into 32 equal portions and form balls or sticks. Place chipa on the greased tray and bake for 20 minutes, or until the chipa is golden brown. Remove and let cool on a rack.


The chipa is better the same day.
The dough can be frozen for up to 3 months.
