Spanish Tortilla

"a wonderful taste of everyday Spanish Life!"
 


enjoy the healthy Spanish life!
 


Basic Ingredients:

olive oil and butter for pan
7 eggs
4 large potatoes, skinned and diced
3 oz. of sliced ham
2 small Chorizos
1 white onion diced
2 bunched green onions sliced
1 tablespoon Garlic
1 tablespoon equal parts of pepper, garlic powder and salt
1/4 teaspoon Spanish Paprika
1/4 cup heavy cream
 

Garnish:
salsa
avocado

Process:

1) Precooking the potatoes: after you have diced your potatoes, place them in a bowl covered
 with plastic wrap and microwave on high for about 8 minutes, after 8 minutes take it out, and with
a large thin soup spoon lift & mix from the bottom of the bowl.

2) Place some butter and oil in a large sauce pan and sauté your onions and gradually add the
meat and Smoked Spanish Paprika... then drain your mixture and save the oils for further use

3) Place the precooked onions into the large pan and add the oils... more if necessary and cook
evenly. When done drain and save the oils

4) Mix your eggs with about 1/4 - 1/2 cup heavy cream and salt, pepper and garlic powder

5) preheat the 2 Spanish Tortilla Pans with the oils you have saved... add more if necessary. Pour
 the egg batter into the smaller of the two pans

6) Cook over a medium low flame and rotate the handle slowly from side to side... we don't
want our Tortilla to burn!

7) After the bottom has set  and you can tell if while inserting the knife in the center of the tortilla
 a little egg batter comes out... wait until it is negligable

8) attach the larger pan to the smaller -- first adding a little oil over the top of the tortilla and flip
 and cook... remover the top pan

9 Repeat this process until the tortilla is fully cooked ( about 8 minutes or so)

10) Place on your tortilla plate, garnish with avocado and serve with salsa of your choice.
Personally, I like a black bean & corn salsa and a garlic salsa.
