cajeta

My Spanish class was discussing a product called "cajeta" to which one may add tequila, but the only translation of "cajeta" I could find didn't sound like the spiced condensed milk I was led to believe is the product. Can somebody clear this up? Do I have the wrong word'

Louise,
Boil the unopened can of condensed , sweetened milk(not evaporated milk) unopened for about 45 min., let cool before you open it and mix to taste with Tequila..... very nice after dinner drink. I use a 1 to 4 or 1 to 3 mixture (tequila to milk product ). Boil the can for 2 hrs or so and you have an exellent topping for ice cream.

Cajeta is popular in Mexico, and is a soft caramel cream. In other countries I think it's called dulce de leche. There is no real translation into English.
