Patatas bravas

From the resourceful Wikipedia: Patatas bravas (Spanish: [paˈtataz ˈβɾaβas]), also called patatas a la brava or papas bravas, is a dish native to Spain, often served as a tapa in bars. It typically consists of white potatoes that have been cut into irregular shapes of about 2 centimeters, then fried in oil and served warm with a sauce such as a spicy tomato sauce or aioli.

Cowboy caviar

My sister asked me to try to write the recipes of the food I post in this blog. She also asked me to do it in Spanish but since this recipe is based on, I guess an american one, I will try to write a bilingual recipe. Basically, the Cowboy Caviar is a fresh and fulfilling bean salad ideal for the warm days of summer.
