I tried this recipe at an international food festival several years ago and simply loved the flavor. The cheese and guava paste go very well together.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 (22 ounce) can guava paste, cut into 1 inch cubes (you can find this in a Latin American store)
  • 1 (16 ounce) package sharp cheddar cheese, cut into 1 inch cubes
  • 20 toothpicks


  1. Skewer one cube of the guava paste and one cube of cheddar cheese on a toothpick.
  2. Repeat with the remaining guava paste and cheddar cheese cubes.
  3. Refrigerate until serving time.
