Chipas (Argentinean Cheese Bread)

Rated as 4.09 out of 5 Stars

"These delicious, Argentinean breads are small balls of cheese bread made from tapioca starch. They are quick and very easy to make. You could even make the dough ahead of time and keep it in the freezer. If you cannot find Argentinean cheeses, Italian cheese will do just fine."

I hadn't eaten this bread since I was in the Peace Corps. The bread was wonderful--chewy and tasty and I didn't need a brick oven to bake it!

I love these. Perfect. Thank you for this great recipe. They remind me of a Brazil style cheese bread. Super easy to make. Well, your fingers get a little sticky but that is worth it.

Not as chewy as I expected,

It was easy to make but a little bland for my taste.

Excellent, followed recipe, easy, kids made. Everyone enjoyed. We will make again.

Great!! Even better with some white wine vinegar and vegetable oil to dip in... Yum
