This smoky-sweet Spanish appetizer recipe is guaranteed to be a hit at your next tapas party! Pair it with a fruity Spanish wine for a simple, elegant hors d'oeuvre that can be prepared in under 15 minutes!


  • 1 baguette, sliced on the bias into 1/4-inch thick slices
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, for drizzling
  • 1 dried Spanish chorizo (I used an uncured variety), sliced thin
  • 1 wedge manchego cheese (I used an 8 month aged raw milk variety), sliced thin
  • 16 dried figs, cut in half
  • 2-4 tablespoons honey, for drizzling
  • Fresh snipped chives, for garnish (optional)


  1. Preheat broiler to high. 
  2. Place baguette slices on a baking sheet and drizzle lightly with olive oil, flipping slices and rubbing them around a bit to get oil on both sides. Broil until golden brown, about 3-5 minutes, then flip and broil for another minute or 2, until golden brown. You may need to do this in 2 batches if using the full baguette. 
  3. Transfer toasted baguette slices to a serving platter. Top each with a slice of manchego, a slice of chorizo, and half of a dried fig. Drizzle crostini with honey and sprinkle chives over top.
