Recipe by bachondo

This is a variation of the classic spanish dish, wich also can be made with as many ingredients as you can find in your refrigerator. For example, if you don't have potatoes but some leftovers of rice or plain pasta, use them instead and the tortilla will be also delicious. You can try whatever filling you want!
