Manchego Cheese and Smoked Paprika Tapas

Manchego Cheese and Smoked Paprika Tapas


Manchego cheese is a Artisan cheese made from raw sheep milk and aged for a period of 2 – 4 months.

The cheese is also preserved in oil, giving it a shiny wet outer texture. This process creates a slightly spicy edge and a medium body flavour, great for eating on it’s own, but also a wonderful accompaniment to tapas dishes, salads, stews and pasta.

  • This is a delicious tapas, great to accompany red wine. Tried manchego cheese for the first time in Santiago de Compostela and was completely blown away. I have to say I am a cheese and tapas lover so this recipe is just heaven for me. 🙂
