"La chica que yo quiero (Made in Spain)" (Spanish pronunciation: [la ˈtʃika ke ʝo ˈkjeɾo (ˈmeið in esˈpein)], "The Girl That I Want (Made in Spain)") was the Spanish entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1988, performed in Spanish by La Década Prodigiosa.

The song was performed sixth on the night, following Turkey's MFÖ with "Sufi" and preceding Netherlands' Gerard Joling with "Shangri-La". At the close of voting, it had received 58 points, placing 11th of a field of 21.

The song is an up-tempo number which lyrically is a paean to the beauty and charm of Spanish girls and women; "Made in Spain - the best guarantee". La Década Prodigiosa sings that compared to Spanish girls, the others seem "all so cold".

It was succeeded as Spanish representative at the 1989 Contest by Nina singing "Nacida para amar".
