A very typical Spanish dish. Tortilla de Patata. And full of controversy. In Spain we are divided about everything. Onion or not onion in the Tortilla. I like both.

This is a different way of presenting it with the sweet pepper flavour as a plus. Can be served as Tapas or as main course is you use bigger peppers.

*Try adding a bit of Chorizo to the potato/egg mix.
