Chipá or chipa in Latin America is a type of pastry cooked mainly with cassava starch, eggs, and a generous amount of cheese. Its origin dates back to the Guarani culture, a group of indigenous people who once lived in the regions of what is now Paraguay, the Northeast of Argentina, and the Southeast of Brazil. Even though the word "chipa" finds its roots in Quechua, which means caked.
