10 Incredible 3-INGREDIENT Spanish TAPAS
The way I served these 10 delicious tapas was over a piece of bread, like they do in tapas bars in Spain. So the bread is not included as an ingredient, neither is salt or pepper. Just make sure to use baguette bread, it makes all the difference in the flavor.

These 10 Spanish tapas are perfect for a tapas party or family get-together. It all comes together so easily and the flavors of each tapa are insanely delicious. No joke here folks, serve these tapas at your next party and everyone is gonna go bazookas!!

10 Incredible 3-INGREDIENT Spanish TAPAS
TIPS & TRICKS to make this recipe: As I stated earlier, make sure to use baguette bread, I cut mine into 1-inch thick diagonal slices and lightly toasted them. The Manchego cheese I used was a mild one, but you can use a stronger cheese if you prefer. I also used an Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil in some of the tapas. The one I used was from Apollo, an absolute flavor bomb that is seriously becoming my go-to EVOO. The ingredients below are to make 3 servings from each tapa, so if you need more, just double up on the ingredients.

    Dear Albert Bevia, thank you for these recipes, which ecouraged me to offer these delicious food for my friends and family, when having gatherings …
    I have an additional question: I’d like to use the picture on top of this page in one of my presentations (about pedagogical issues :-).
    I’d like to use a serios reference to the source of the pic and would friendly ask, if I can use this photograph and refer to the photographer and your page.
    Would be great, if this is possible.
    Thank’s for your answer in advance!
    Best Regards, Thomas
