Spanish Tortilla with Chorizo - Caity


Let me start by saying, I don't like eggs. Not in any form. At restaurants I order Eggs Benedict, without eggs please. 

But it is possible for me to like this delicious scramble of potatoes, onions, chorizo and eggs. Why? Because it does not taste like eggs to me! I started eating tortilla during the summer I studied abroad in Barcelona, Spain and it has stuck with me. It's great because it keeps well in the fridge, or on the counter. It is good hot or cold and it reheats well.

Spanish tortilla is always confusing to tourists when they first arrive. They order a tortilla and out comes what looks like quiche leaving people confused about what exactly they may have accidentally said in Spanish to order such a thing. I'm not sure where along the line tortilla became a completely different flour/corn object, but I do know one thing: it's amazing!
