Tapas are an institution everywhere in Spain. These are tidbits of food for nibbling while chatting with friends and can be made with seafood, meat, eggs and vegetables, to be served hot or cold. Garbanzos, chorizo and Spanish pimientos del piquillo are some of the classic tapa ingredients. For an authentic touch, serve it in little earthenware dishes called "cazuelas", as it is served throughout Andalucia. Adapted from Beverly LeBlanc's book "World Food - SPAIN"
