Easy Spanish Recipes

Assalamualaikum wbt and peace be upon you,

Since my dad had just come back from Spain, I've been digging into my mom's cookbook and found this recipe which I think is very simple to make (though I've never done it, sorry haha).
Spanish Cold Vegetable Soup (Gazpacho)

1/4 kg tomatoes
2 peppers
1 clove garlic
5 tbsps oil
150 g bread crumbs

Crush the garlic and chopped pepper in a mortar with a little salt. Add the tomatoes which have been cut into pieces and the moistened bread crumbs.
When everything has been well crushed, add olive oil little by little, stirring continuously. When it has been absorbed, add cold water and then strain it off. Add vinegar and salt and serve very cold with croutons as accompaniment.
The next recipe looks mouthwatering, so I'll share it with you also. I'll google the pix later hokay.
Chicken with a Tomato and Pepper Accompaniment (Pollos a la chilindron).

2 chickens, 600 g each
4 large tomatoes
4 small green peppers
1 large onion
2 dl oil (don't know what dl means, so don't ask me :))
150 g fresh ham (Muslims don't take ham, so maybe we can substitute if for beef or something).
1 glass of wine (we don't take wine also, so grape juice maybe??)
Seasoning: garlic, chilli pepper, salt.

The chicken joints are sauteed until they turn golden brown and then put aside.
Prepare a fried mixture of tomato, green pepper, onion, chilli pepper and plenty of chopped garlic. Put the chicken and the fried mixture together and cook for five minutes. Then add thinly sliced semi-cured ham and cook for another five minutes. With the ham a small glass of wine may be added.
That's all. Happy cooking.
