“From Tapas: A Taste of Spain in America by José Andrés of Jaleo restaurant in Washington, DC as posted on with a few changes on my part. I substituted manchego for murcia al vino (also known as Drunken Goat because it is aged in red wine). Any specialty store will carry manchego as does Trader Joe's. If you can find murcia cheese, that can be used instead of course.”
