I used chicken chorizo and whole milk instead of half and half (what I had on hand) and this dish turned out wonderful! I made it the other morning for my fiance and his fishing buddy and they both ate two slices. It is a large recipe and is even better the next day in my opinion.
I scaled down to 2 wedges and we both thought it was delicious. Loved the spiciness of the chorizo tamed by the potatoes (which I nuked). I'm a big fan of chorizo and manchego, and I thought these ingredients suited the blander (but always delicious!) potato tortilla.
i did not put it in oven just covered and cooked on low we really liked this made it for 4 worked fine made for zaar world tour 8
