Classic Spanish Tortilla

- 6 medium potatoes peeled and chopped
- 1 large onion diced
- 6 eggs beaten
- 1 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp pepper
I love love love Spanish tortilla, and I love this recipe! It's simple and always tasty. Tortilla is a part of Spanish life, and after a few tries I got into a groove making it. Now it's a weekly staple at home. The first time I flipped mine and it became potato hash.
This recipe is the bare bones tortilla Española. You can dress it up any way you like by adding ham, green or red peppers, chiles, or cheese. It all works and it always tastes great. Just keep playing around with it until you find your perfect recipe, or stick to the basics.
Also, I highly recommend a nonstick skillet for the newbies!
If flipping the tortilla freaks you out, leave it in the skillet after cooking the first side and then broil the other side until golden brown.
