Melted Manchego Tortas with Romesco and Chorizo

Photo: Andrew Thomas Lee; Styling: Kaitlyn Du Ross  

Spanish flatbreads, or tortas, are a tapas staple. Make these with thin sandwich round halves and a 1 1/4-inch circular cutter. You'll only use 1/4 cup of the romesco, but the remainder makes a great sauce for meats, vegetables, or fish.
