Hand held, accessible and versatile, the sandwich is enjoying a moment right now. We’re not talking anemic egg or tuna salad here - today’s sandwich is all about global influences and gourmet fillings. In Spain, the bocadillo or bocata consists of high quality ingredients within a fresh, crunchy baguette-style bread - it is built to resist going soggy! So, what better cuisine to shape your next lunch - or dinner - bite than the home of the bocadillo. That’s right, with these ingredients from Spain you can turn a quick meal option into a gourmet feed!
Chorizo con Tomate - Spain’s smoky paprika-packed cured sausage, the thinly sliced version of chorizo, makes an excellent sandwich partner with some slices of fresh ripe salad tomato. If you want to fill it out, add some lettuce leaves, for a creative twist on a BLT. But hold the mayo!
