As a HUGE fan of tapas, my favorite dish by far are these Croquetas de Jamón (Spanish Ham Croquettes). Unlike most typical croquettes, this tasty delight is unique because it doesn’t contain any potatoes! With a filling made from creamily smooth béchamel sauce & ham, and that super-light yet crispy breadcrumb coating, each bite is sheer, giddy indulgence.
