About this recipe: My boyfriend christened this and I think it's a pretty accurate description, chorizo, olives, peppers and potatoes always remind me of holidays in Spain. With the addition of the eggs it's almost like an inside out Spanish omlette.

Had a dish very like this in Spain, can't remember what they called it but it had all the ingredients listed here in it. I make this quite often & it takes me right back to the sun. - 16 Sep 2010


Used different ingredients. I only made a change because I don't like olives. I used 8 small cubes of feta cheese in their place. Not so Spanish but worked really well with the other ingredients. - 12 Apr 2010
