Chipa NZ

Do you know CHIPA?

Chipa is a traditional cheese bread hailing from South America. Its roots trace back to the Guaraní people, who inhabited present-day Paraguay, northern Argentina, southern Brazil, and Uruguay. They crafted bread using cassava flour (tapioca) and animal fat, cooking it over open coals. In the 15th century, Spanish settlers brought animals and cheese-making techniques. Jesuit Missions blended Guaraní traditions with Spanish knowledge, giving birth to a rich culinary fusion we now know as Chipa (Paraguay, Argentina, and Uruguay), Pão De Queijo (Brazil), or Cuñapé (Bolivia). The recipe underwent slight modifications in different countries, becoming a beloved snack across the Americas, Spain, and worldwide. And here's the best part: it's naturally gluten-free! Who can resist the allure of cheese⁉️🧀
How to cook Chipa? 1. Preheat the oven 200° (180° for Pandebonos). 2. Place the Chipa frozen on a baking tray 3 centimeters apart. You can use a baking paper for better result. 3. Place the tray on a medium high level in the oven and bake for 15 minutes (18 minutes for the vegan and Pandebonos) Until they're softly golden. 4. Enjoy!

Chipa family

New Zealand will love chipa as much as we do 💛
We are a passionate Argentine family deeply in love with the stunning natural beauty of New Zealand. Several years ago, we embarked on a journey to make this beautiful land our home. Our hearts beat for the culinary arts, and we've always had an entrepreneurial spirit. Out of this love for cooking and a desire to bring the flavors of South America to Aotearoa, Chipa NZ was born. Our dream is simple: to introduce a unique texture and taste to the Kiwi food scene, hoping that Chipa will become as cherished here as it is across the Americas and beyond. This delectable cheese snack holds a special place in the hearts of South Americans, both gastronomically and culturally. To honor this heritage, we meticulously craft each Chipa using only the finest, freshest ingredients. Our kitchen adheres to the strictest food safety standards, ensuring the utmost quality and taste in every bite. We take pride in creating gourmet snacks free from artificial preservatives, colors, or aromas. And, in our commitment to sustainability, all our packaging is either compostable or recyclable. So, as you enjoy our Chipa, you're savoring not just a snack but a piece of our passion and dedication to quality.
