Spanish Appetizers & Snacks

Delish appetizers and snacks that are simple to make!
Membrillo (Quince Paste)

Membrillo (Quince Paste)

A Spanish delicacy with a gumdrop-like texture, membrillo is traditionally served with manchego cheese.

Patatas Bravas

Patatas Bravas

Patatas bravas means “fierce potatoes,” and hot smoked Spanish paprika gives the sauce for these roasted spuds an addictive bite. Spoon the sauce over the potatoes, or serve in a bowl along with toothpicks for dunking the potato wedges.

Mushroom-Manchego Quesadillas

Mushroom-Manchego Quesadillas

Mushrooms in Mexican food? You bet. Wild mushrooms are a popular ingredient all over Mexico. Use a young manchego cheese (labeled curado), which is nutty, and melts nicely. Monterey Jack also works well.

Fresh Corn and Tomatillo Salsa

Nothing says summer like corn. Here, kernels are heated just enough to lose their raw taste, then mixed into a chunky salsa verde. Try the mixture stirred into mashed avocado for instant guacamole.

Herb-laced Olive Medley

An overnight soak in a marinade of olive oil, garlic, lemon, and herbs turns plain olives into a taste sensation. This recipe calls for brine-cured olives, but you can use any type you prefer, even canned.
