This wine punch is just right for summer parties. It's such a crowd pleaser, you may want to make 2 batches at a time.
Arroz Con Pollo
This one-pot recipe for Arroz Con Pollo, which is great for a crowd, comes from Martha's book One Pot: 120+ Easy Meals from Your Skillet, Slow Cooker, Stockpot, and More. It's made with bone-in fatty chicken thighs, pimiento-stuffed green olives, chopped tomatoes, saffron threads, and bay leaves.
You don't need a special paella pan to make this easy take on the classic Spanish dish. Use a wide, shallow saute pan with a lid. Chicken sausage and shrimp star in this one-pan dinner.
Tomatoes and bell pepper meld magically in gazpacho, which gets body from bread and zing from orange juice. For more Spanish flair, garnish this soup with tapas-style toppings, such as chopped hard-cooked egg and sardines, tuna, or sliced cured ham like jamón Ibérico.
Baked Rice with Chorizo and Clams
This dish can also be made with sausage and broccoli rabe. Both variations have the same base. See the Chef's Note below for instructions.
Spicy Mussels and Chorizo
Sweet, plump mussels are steamed in a sauce made with tomatoes, garlic, red chile flakes, and wine; chorizo, a Spanish sausage, adds extra heat.
Olive-Oil-Fried Potatoes with Aioli
Dip these fried potato wedges into garlicky aioli for an easy-to-share appetizer inspired by the Spanish tapas dish patatas bravas. Parboiling the sliced-up spuds and letting them dry on a baking sheet before frying in olive oil guarantees a creamy center and crunchy shell.
