Chipa Guazu Express Recipe (Corn Casserole from Paraguay)

I am paraguayan living in the US, and I found an easy way of making this dish, which is a great side dish for summer barbecues, appetizers, and it’s always a hit… it makes a large pyrex.


  • 2 large packages of frozen corn
  • 1 package of shredded cheese, like mozzarella or six cheese italian
  • 1/2 large white/yellow onion or 1 pre-chopped onion container
  • 3 eggs
  • vegetable oil (1 cup)
  • milk (moderate)


  1. Stir fry the onion with abundant oil and let it cool. If you don’t like to feel the texture of the onion, you can blend it. Let it cool down…
  2. Process the corn (thawed) with a little bit of milk until it gets to a creamy texture (the texture is personal, if you like to feel some texture, process it less)…
  3. In a large bowl, mix the cream of corn, shredded cheese, lightly beat eggs, salt to taste, and the fried onions with the rest of the oil from the pan.
  4. Pour in a pyrex or disposable baking tray and cook in 375-400 degree oven for 40 min to 1 hour until golden. Once it cools down, cut it in squares and serve.

    Small detail: You forgot to put the weight of the cheese
    Needs the amount of milk too
