Spanish Tortilla-Cheater's Way

This is by no means authentic, but it's tasty and easier to make than the real one. My apologies to the purists. To the practical cheaters like me, enjoy!

Tasty and easy tortilla! Simple with the potato and onion but really good. Served with recipe #190478 and it was a good combination. Thanks for sharing the recipe! Made for Fall PAC 2012
