Sure, at first glance this might look like a made-up word. Yet, a pincho is actually a delicious type of Spanish dish. Pinchos are similar to tapas, but generally larger and served in individual portions. Typically, pinchos are served as snacks in bars and are arranged in a finger-food friendly manner.
Pinchos got their name because they are most often served with a, you guessed it, pincho, the Spanish word for toothpick or skewer. Pinchos can also be served on a slice of bread or in a small bread bowl. Sometimes, they’re even served with both!
