When I have to entertain guests with very different taste preferences I like to make TAPAS. There are a lot of dishes you can make in advance or are just served cold. Everybody will find something they like. And I like all of them. 

I usually make some sauces, salads, cold [instant] dishes and only a few warm dishes. And never forget a nice, fruity sangria!

Sauces: tomato salsa, guacamole, garlic-yoghurt sauce, chili jam

Salads: corn+bean salad, green salad 

Cold: nacho chips, pickled onions, olives, capers, chilli filled with cream cheese

Warm: garlic bread, corn cobs, chicken skewers, garlic prawns, garlic mushrooms, dates in bacon, chorizo, patatas bravas


  • ripe tomatoes
  • onions
  • jalapeños
  • cilantro
  • lime juice
  • salt

_ cut tomatoes in half

_ take out the seeds [dispose of the seeds]

_ cut tomatoes, onions, jalapeños and cilantro into small pieces [as small as you can manage]

_ mix everything together and season with salt and lime juice
