Sweet Heat Challenge – Tapas

Uncategorized | March 1, 2012 | By

This month I’m guest hosting the Sweet Heat Challenge on behalf of Lyndsey at Vanilla Clouds and Lemon Drops.

“The monthly theme varies from a type of dish, a special ingredient to combine with chillies or a cuisine, but no matter what, the star ingredient will always remain the same. Fresh, dried, crushed or ground the choice is yours! Each challenge will last roughly 1 month so you have plenty of time to work out what you want to make and participate.”

So for March I am challenging you to make those tasty little Spanish snacks:

The challenge will be open until 25th March and you can make any kind of Tapas as long as it includes chillies.
The Rules:

1. You must mention Sweet Heat in your post with a link back to this site and to this post on Farmersgirl Kitchen  Please feel free to include the Sweet Heat logo however it’s not mandatory.

2.Send your post url, your name and a photo (if possible no bigger than 500 pixels please) of your creation to [email protected] and also to [email protected] by the 25th of March, so we can both include your entries in the round up.

3. You can create your own recipe or make your favourite recipe but please credit the original source if using someone else’s.

4. The round up will be done at the end of every month. The new challenge will be announced on the 1st of every month.
You must include chillies/ chili/ chile peppers of some type in your dish!

I haven’t made my own entry for the challenge yet, but was given a book of Tapas recipes recently just have to decide which of the delicious recipes to indulge in!

I was also invited to review the tapas at La Tasca in Renfield Street, Glasgow yesterday with some fellow bloggers,  more of this in the next few days, but in the meantime here is a picture of the Pollo Marbella (Chicken breast, cooked with smoked paprika, chorizo, mixed peppers, onons and a white wine & cream sauce)  it was delicious.

Challenge closed – Round up will be posted on 31st March

Well, we should definitely be inspired after last night in La Tasca.

Am adding it to The Food Blog Diary now 🙂


I love spanish food so this is a great choice for me.

I might well have a go, though the ones I made the other day won't do as they are chilli-less


I can't wait! I love Tapas so now I just need to come up with a new spicy recipe! Great choice for this month's challenge : )
