Baked Plantains with Guava and Cheese (Plátanos Asados con Bocadillo y Queso) are a traditional Colombian recipe that tastes comforting, and makes a great dessert or sweet side dish. Inspired by my travels to Colombia, this easy recipe will transport you to the street corners of Bogota!
Add peeled plantains to a baking sheet. Bake for 30-45 minutes, until plantains have fully softened. You should be able to easily pierce them with a fork. Slice the plantains lengthwise through the middle.
Slice the guava paste and the cheese into ½-inch thick slices. Fill each plantain with slices of guava paste and slices of cheese, side by side with each other.
Bake in the oven for 10 minutes, until the guava paste has softened and the cheese has fully melted and begun to ooze out.
This recipe is best enjoyed fresh from the oven
