The flavors were absolutely delicious! I followed the directions exactly for the potatoes which made them more flavorful than if they had been boiled. I cooked the onions and (poblano) peppers as directed and the onions just began to carmelize, yum! I just cooked the garlic and tomatoes a minute or two which was enough to soften. I had to double the filling, because the veggies cooked down so much, and would have like more potato. The omelet itself was a little awkward to make and I turned off the heat and covered to set the top without burning the underside. Thanks for posting, I will make this again with the noted changes. Made for ZWT#5.
