Popular throughout Spain, tapas are festive and delicious appetizers and snacks that are perfect for get-togethers or summer dinner parties. Traditional tapas include mixed olives, fried baby squid, meatballs and chorizo.  One of our favorite tapas is bacon-wrapped dates, which take just a few minutes and ingredients to prepare. Spanish cookbook author Penelope Casas takes this appetizer to the next level by stuffing spicy chorizo into sticky-sweet dates, and then wrapping them in bacon. These one-bite tapas are perfectly sweet and smoky, and are delicious any time of year. Whether you're craving briny seafood or crispy potatoes, these are our best tapas recipes.
