The landlocked Republic of Paraguay is a neighbor of the South American countries of Brazil, Bolivia, and Argentina. It is the location of the Itaipu Dam, which is the world's largest hydroelectric power plant. Typical questions relate to the country's atypical respect for local cultures and native languages; land buy-ups by overseas investors; and politico-economic record as a fledgling constitutional presidential republic.

International Cuisine

What is the most popular food in Paraguay?

Yucca - otherwise known as - is the most common food found on tables all over Paraguay. And its not just in the rural areas. Its eaten at nearly every meal, 365 days a year, most Paraguayans would not eat anything without it.

Mandioca is another very traditional food - shaped like bagels, they are made from mandioca flour (freshly ground), corn meal, Paraguayan cheese, eggs, pig fat/butter, anise. It is traditionally baked in a tatakua (guarani for brick oven) - that is dome shaped and heated using fire, the fire is then removed, the food is placed inside and the two openings are closed. The brick oven retains the heat (extreme heat!) and the food is cooked very quickly. Chipa is traditionally a Semana Santa (Holy Week - Easter) food. But it can also be purchased on any city/country bus by mobile vendors year round for 1.000 mil guaranies (very inexpensive snack). It is best served hot, it becomes hard when cooled.

Chipa Guazu is similar to a potato, its a root vegetable, 100% starch. Its filling and best eaten hot. In many countries it is fryed, however, in Paraguay, it is simply peeled then boiled - no seasoning whatsoever, not even salt.

Another national food - sopa Paraguaya. Sopa in Spanish is soup, but sopa Paraguaya is a corn bread made from fresh ground corn meal, eggs, pig fat or butter, salt, Paraguayan fresh cheese, onions (optional). It is a bit expensive to make for people in the rural areas, and is often a dish made for special occasions/holidays.

Chipa is another popular food, very similar to sopa Paraguaya. The difference is the texture, chipa guazu is "mushier" due to the corn being only slightly milled (to the texture of creamed corn, rather than corn flour used in sopa). It is quite popular during the corn harvest as it really only requires corn, eggs and cheese.

Asado, or barbecue, is a very popular meal particularly for Sundays and holidays. Beef ribs are cooked on a "parilla" or grill with only salt and lemon juice as seasoning. Pork is very popular, pigs are raised for 1-2 years in advance of a special occasion (such as a quinceanos - 15th birthday party for a girl - or a religious holiday). Generally it is prepared in a mix of lemon juice, cumin and salt and baked in the tatakua oven. Asado and pork are usually accompanied by a potato or rice salad and mandioca.

Meat, chicken and pork are also consumed with rice as "guiso" or stew. The meat is prepared mixed with white rice and onions, green peppers and tomatoes. Sometimes it is quite soupy, sometimes it is prepared thick and no liquid remains. This is also consumed with mandioca.

Milanesa is also very popular particularly for special occasions, both meat and chicken. The meat is pounded very thin then coated in flour and bread crumbs then fried. It is similar to country fried chicken but no gravy is used and it is very thin.

Empanadas are a popular quick breakfast or snack. They are generally purchased on the go, but sometimes are prepared at home as well. Empanadas are meat, chicken, or ham/cheese fried in a thin flat "tortilla" like dough. A mild hot sauce usually tops them.

Cheap red wine is mixed with Coca-cola for a refreshing beverage. Pilsen is the national beer, though Brahma (Brazilian brand) is even more popular, it is slightly more expensive and considered "finer." The Argentinian brand, Quilmes, is also quite popular as is Bahvarian.


What is a recipe for Paraguay's chipa bread?

1 Kilo (a bit over 2 pounds) of Yucca Starch

20 grams of fine salt (table salt)

1 Kilo (a bit over 2 pounds) of Mild tasting white Cheese (Mexican Queso Ranchero easily found in Stores)

7 eggs

150 grams of Lard (use crisco, butter or margarine as a substitute)

Anise to taste

2 Tablespoons of Parmesan Cheese (some brands have a stronger taste, if you find the chipa with a really strong cheese taste you can use less if you like)

Mix the lard with the eggs, then the cheese in small chunks, the salt, the anise and the parmesan cheese. Keep mixing and slowly ad the starch. Mix until the dough is nice and even. Bake for about 20 min in high heat (400F roughly).
