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.

This chipas are excellent! yum yum yum... I mixed two types of cheeses: shredded parmesan and cubed fontina. Tip: at the last 5 minutes of the baking, sprkinkle parmesan cheese on top for extra... yumminess. good luck!

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!
