    An American in Spain's Note:

    This recipe was adapted from "the tapas cookbook" and modified to be more pleasing to the Northern European and North American tastes. These croquettes make an outstanding tapa and can even be served as a first course for a dinner party.

      This a very tasty appetizer and if you roll them small enough -- you can get a good quantity out of the rice mixture. The croquettes do not roll up very easily and I was afraid they would fall apart in the oil, but they didn't and they turned out really well. I will definitely make them again, but I will need to add more bread crumbs or flour to the mixture as the recipe indicates. Made for the Tapas Party tag, January, 2012.
