> 30 RITZ Crackers
> 5 slices deli Black Forest ham (4 oz), each cut into 6 pieces
> 3 oz queso fresco, Manchego, queso blanco, or cotija cheese, cut into 30 pieces

Top crackers with ham, folding slices if necessary. Then top with cheese and guava paste slices or jelly.


Guava paste, also known as guava cheese, is a thick puree of guava fruit, sugar, and sometimes added pectin. Look for it in the International section of your supermarket. If you can't find guava paste, you can instead use membrillo or quince paste.
