3. Charcuterie board
In the world of tapas, as in many others, sometimes the simplest is the best. For example, a charcuterie board is one of the best ways to enjoy different flavours, without the need for much elaboration. Simply place a selection of cold meats such as chorizo, ham, lomo or salchichón on a board or a flat plate and accompany them with some manzanilla olives, Manchego cheese and some country-style peppers. I assure you that it is difficult to find something better to share with your guests.
If you accompany it with a good tempranillo red wine or a vermouth, your friends might just chant your name.
4. Spanish omelette with chorizo
If there is one Spanish dish you have to try, it is the Spanish omelette. This potato omelette is traditionally made with nothing more than eggs, potatoes and onions. But you should know that the addition of chorizo takes it to the next level. Follow the classic Spanish omelette recipe and add chopped chorizo to the pan while you cook the potatoes.
5. Chorizo Sandwich
The chorizo bocata is a classic in Spanish homes. It is the typical sandwich that children eat at school or during snack time. To prepare it, all you need is white bread, a few drops of oil and thinly sliced chorizo. If you toast the bread a little, you might get a tear in your eye when you take the first bite.
