    Manami's Note:

    Guava and cheese (Guyaba con Queso) is a typical combination for Cubans. It is delicious! They have Guava Skins that are made in syrup and then combined with cream cheese and "Cuban" crackers - oh my!!! This is an acquired taste and one that is NOT diet friendly!! This was given to me by a woman who works in the activities dept and is trying to start her own dessert business. Didn't include chilling time of about 3 hours up to overnight.

      Beautifully made and a delicious flavor! I followed the recipe EXACTLY!!! The flan itself has perfect texture however I would have preferred it to have a bit more kick of the guava, but that was easily fixed by adding a few guava paste slices on the side!
