Bori-bori (vori-vori) is a hearty Paraguayan soup filled with meat (usually beef or chicken), fluffy dumplings consisting of cornmeal and cheese, and vegetables such as carrots, celery, and onions. The soup is traditionally flavored with bay leaves, cloves, and parsley, while saffron gives it a rich golden color.

Bori-bori is especially popular during the cold winter months, although it is sometimes also consumed during the summer. It is recommended to serve bori-bori warm, sprinkled with parsley and accompanied by grated parmesan cheese on the side. The soup is very rich in nutrients, and there are many varieties such as the one with the addition of grilled chicken pieces.

The word bori (vori) means ball, referring to the cornflour balls found in it.
