Pinchos are definitely related to tapas. You eat both as a snack to bridge the gap from one meal to the next or while having drinks and appetizers.

Tapas is eaten across the whole of Spain where as a pincho is found more in the North of Spain. Pincho refers to the skewer or toothpick that is used to pinch the food to a piece of bread or the hold it together while cooking.

If you want to be all authentic you can cover your Sherry with your pincho tapas. That is one of the reasons why the tapas was invented in the first place and prevent (fruit) flies being attracted to the sweet Sherry.

The tapas was used to cover the drinks in between sips.

Spanish tapas pinchos ingredients

If you want to make Spanish tapas pinchos get these ingredients:

  • Baguette
  • Spanish tortilla
  • Bacon
  • Turkey lunch meat
  • Serrano ham
  • Cherry tomatoes
  • Bell pepper

In some restaurants the length of the skewer determines the price of the pincho. So a pincho with a long skewer is more expensive than a short skewer.

I only had one size skewers in my drawer, so no debating about price when it comes to my pinchos. They are all the same size.

How to make Spanish tapas

Start with pre heating the oven to 440℉/220℃  and bake the bread in 8-10 minutes. Heat a skillet to medium and bake the strips of bacon until crispy. Put aside.

Then bake the bell pepper in the skillet on medium until the bell pepper is soft. Also set these aside. Now it is time to assemble the pinchos.

Slice the bread in equal pieces. Take skewer and put a strip of bacon on a skewer. Slice the Spanish tortilla into equal wedges and put on top of a slice of bread. Stick the bacon skewer in the Spanish tortilla and bread.

Repeat with the turkey bacon and put it on a skewer. Stick into a Spanish tortilla wedge and bread. Now do the same with the cherry tomatoes, bell pepper and cold Serrano ham.

Ready to serve. These pinchos are great to make ahead and store in the refrigerator until ready to serve. Eat them with a chilled glass of white wine or a Sherry.
