You may have heard of Spanish appetizers called Tapas. Tapas are a culinary tradition of Spain and are small plates of food that are served as appetizers. Three different types of tapas are traditionally served in Spain. You have the Pinchos which are small dishes that require a utensil or toothpick, Cazuelas which are small dishes or portions that are served in a sauce, and Cocas de Picar which are your finger foods.
Appetizers, which are called aperitivos, are meant to be more of a supplement to a full meal. Whether you are looking for actual Spanish appetizers or Tapas, we’ve included both for you to serve at your next gathering.
