4 LAST-MINUTE Tapas for your Holiday Party | QUICK & EASY Tapas Recipe

With the holidays around the corner and time going faster than ever, I´m going to show you how to make 4 LAST-MINUTE Tapas that are perfect for your next holiday party or family get-together.

4 LAST-MINUTE Tapas
The beauty of these four tapas is that they´re easy to make, require no cooking and each one comes together within minutes. Serve these tapas as an appetizer or even as main course. Either way, they promise to be the star of your dinner table.

4 LAST-MINUTE Tapas
All four of these tapas pair perfectly with any Spanish red or white wine. For the reds, I recommend wines from the regions of Jumilla, Campo de Borja and Rioja. For the whites, Rías Baixas, Utiel-Requena and Rioja.

    Perfection! Love that I can find ingredients at La Tienda online if my market doesn’t have them, like Spanish Tuna and quality saffron. Your simple but insanely delicious recipes have increased my confidence in the kitchen! Annie
