Chipas (Argentinean Cheese Bread)

Total Time
Prep 15 mins
Cook 15 mins

This is a recipe I found on-line at all recipes by Arthropod. 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.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Oil a baking sheet with cooking spray and set aside.
  2. Stir together egg, milk, cheese, and butter in a large bowl. Sprinkle in tapioca starch and flour; stir in to form a dough. Knead dough for two minutes on a lightly floured surface, then roll into golf ball-sized pieces, and place onto prepared baking sheet.
  3. Bake in preheated oven until golden brown, 10 to 15 minutes.

These reminded me a lot of Chebe Bread which you can usually get in the gluten free section of a supermarket. I did sub GF flour for the self-rising flour and they turned out great. I occasionally use Chebe Bread for my pizza crust, but now I no longer need to buy the mix because I have a recipe. Thanks Diner!! Made for Gimme 5 Tag.

Just for the heck of it I used a mix of cheeses in this recipe ~romano & mazzarella as well as parmesan (to appease by other half!) & that worked out well! I'd doubled the recipe & had them out on my finger food counter where they were gone in no time! Definitely worth making again! [Tagged, made & reviewed in Please Review My Recipe]
