What is Bocadillo con Queso?

It is a simple and easy to make Colombian dessert also known as casado in some parts of the country.

A slice of white cheese with a slice of guava paste, but the combination of salty cheese and sweet guava paste is one of those heavenly combinations that you simply must try if you haven’t already.
