It’s time to ring in the New Year and I can’t think of a better way to celebrate than with family, good friends, and Spanish tapitas.

Spanish tapas are those wonderful little side dishes (appetizers) of Spain.  For celebrations, it’s good fun to make a variety of tapas to be enjoyed and nibbled on throughout the evening.


They’re quick to put together and your guests will enjoy sampling many different flavors of Spain in just one night.

If you’re planning on attending a party, a tapa and a nice bottle of wine makes a great hostess gift.

For me and mine, we’re bundling up the family and ringing in the New Years with our church family.  I plan on taking a few tapitas to be shared since it’ll be a cinch to put together a platter of Spanish cheeses and charcuterie… and who doesn’t love Spanish chorizo?

Below is a list of some of my favorite Spanish Tapas Recipes.

10 Spanish Tapas to Ring in the New Year
