Cheese buns, cheese puffs or cheese breads are small, cheese-flavored rolls, a popular snack and breakfast food in Bolivia, Brazil, Paraguay and northern Argentina. The snack is often sold from streetside stands or by vendors carrying a heat-preserving container. Usually inexpensive, they are popular among all ages.

They are known as pćo de queijo ([pćw ʤi 'kej.ʒŭ] or similar) 'cheese bread' in Portuguese and chipį or cuńapé in Guarani, especially in Santa Cruz de la Sierra.

They are distinctive not only because they are made of cassava or corn flour, but also because the inside is chewy and moist. If poorly done, they may seem uncooked or doughy. Their size may range from one to six inches in diameter, with about two inches of height. In Paraguay and Argentina, smaller chipį can also be found.[/b]

4 cups of Tapioca Starch
3 cups of Mozarella Chesse (I added Parmesan cheese as well)
3 eggs
1/2 cup of milk
1/2 cup of oil
Baking powder

Put the tapioca starch in a bowl. Heat both milk and oil. When boiling, turn off and put them on the tapioca starch. Mix them with your hands (be careful its HOT so use gloves). Leave them to cool.

After cooling put the eggs, salt, powder, and cheese.. Mix until you think it is ready.

Make balls and bake!

It's great to make and freeze! Whenever you feel like eating, just ready to bake!!

Oh my!! They are awesome with hot chocolate or nescafe by its side!!

So good. And when you are feeling too lazy, try these: Against the Grain rolls. They taste exactly like pao de quejio.

We accidentally discovered them ... give them a little toast. Amazing!
