Chorizo is a tasty meat to top a cracker or slice of baguette. The same goes for Manchego with honey.
Smoked paprika on anything. Penzy's has a good one.
White figs in a balsamic reduction (I've got a recipe somewhere).
Maybe a polenta base or even whit grits for your carb. Pretty versatile accompaniment.
So many possibilities. But what about the wines?
I like the way you think.
I'd add that breassola, fontina, and watercress makes a delightful pairing.
