This is a recipe for the classic Spanish tortilla, also called Spanish omelette. You won't find a more authentic recipe than this!
Colourful and packed with flavours, this thick, flat omelette, called a tortilla in Spanish, tastes good served at any temperature. The classic recipe contains only potatoes, onions and eggs, but this version has extra vegetables and lean ham added. Serve with a green salad.
Ok...there's many ways to make an omelette but this one is a meal. Based on the Spanish tortilla it has potatoes as its main veg but then you can add what you want: in this case it's sweetcorn, courgette and green pepper. I often add chopped chilli or tabasco too.
This is very easy to make, it doesn't cost a fortune and most people have a couple of onions, potatoes and eggs spare. It's low on cost and high on taste. It's ideal to eat hot or cold and great to eat with a salad. Please note you will need a deep fat fryer, a frying pan and a dinner plate.
This dish is also known as tortilla de patatas. Crisp potatoes and onions are incorporated into a pan-fried omelette. It's then served with chopped tomatoes and spring onions.
