Spanish Patatas Bravas are a wonderfully flavorful snack, especially when combined with a whole Tapas-style meal.
Flavored with spicy Mediterranean flavors, these potatoes get an extra boost of intensity from fabulous Spanish sherry.
My Spanish Patatas Bravas is one of the most traditional tapas recipes you’ll encounter. I’ve eaten them in Spain as part of a “tapas tour” in Barcelona and across the United States. They appear with slight variations from place to place, but the basics are always the same. Potatoes, tomatoes, onions and smoky paprika.
This version kicks up the Spanish flavors a bit more with the addition of a good quality Spanish Sherry. It makes all the difference, so please don’t skip this ingredient!
