Pudín de Coco y Queso (Coconut and Cheese Pudding)

Grated coconut and cream cheese. All cooked and hugged in a caramel blanket.

I never would have known that Pudín de Coco y Queso is code name for walking on Cuban clouds of deliciousness.

Why is it that some of the the names of our dishes sound so meh? Pudín, and even pudding, really sounds so mediocre. How about a little more flair for this one? Something like, Pachanga de Coco y Queso.  Or, Coco y Queso Heaven, perhaps?

Whatever you name it, just remember one thing - PATIENCE PAYS.  Please, please, please - from the bottom of my heart, I ask you to let this puppy cool before you decide to do the flip.

You took such great care to bathe that flanera with the caramelo just right.  Make sure you let the pudín sit in the fridge for at least four hours.  You don't want to leave any of that beautiful caramel blanket behind.
