What are Chipás?
Hard to believe, but true – in Argentina, people don’t only eat grilled meat! Another speciality next to the well-known asado are the Chipás (depending on the region and recipe also called Chipa or Pan de queso). These are buns made from manioc starch and a loooot of cheese. They are mainly eaten in the provinces of Misiones and Corrientes in northeastern Argentina. The delicious pastry is also relatively well known in Paraguay and Bolivia. Depending on the region and country, the ingredients in the recipe vary a bit and the shape of the Chipás can either be round, elongated or flatter.
