The original recipe of the chipa guazu does NOT have tomatoes or olives... this is an alternative recipe.

There may be a number of variations to the original recipe, but yes, the original will never have olives or tomatoes :o) The original recipe also calls for milk.

Ugh! This is not anything like how AUTHENTIC chipa guazu should be made. I lived in Paraguay for over two years and I can tell you that this recipe is all wrong. The only ingredients should be fresh corn (taken off the cob and which is quite different from any american corn), cheese (normally a fresh white farmers cheese similar to queso fresco), pig fat or oil, eggs, salt, milk and onions. There are definitely not tomatoes or olives! Just ask any Paraguayan!!
