A growing list of easy Spanish recipes! Be it tapas or desserts, take your pick and try one (or all) of these traditional Spanish dishes in the comfort of your own home!
Saying that Spanish cuisine is quite rich is actually an under-statement.
So, expect different versions of these dishes, depending on which part of Spain you go.
However, I do try to mention which particular Spanish city I’ve managed to try each dish — hopefully that helps in making the distinction.
SPANISH RECIPES FOR TAPAS

A word of caution though. These are best served straight out of the pan, so be careful, they can be really HOT!
