"Found this recipe on the internet. It had ingredients that I like and was stated to be a typical spanish omelette. Update: This is just the basic start, use this and then add seasonings, vegetables and meats and/or cheeses to suit your taste. After cooking it you might want to add ketchup, salsa or hot pepper sauce, be creative!!!!"

    Dear all, I'm a Spaniard chef and would like to share with you some tips about making a good Spanish potatoes omelette. First of all, forget about cutting the potatoes into small cubes . . . the right way to do it is cutting it into very thin slices and fry them very slowly in extra virgin olive oil. It depends on your own taste but, I prefer to fry them until they are soft tender but not toasted. I also usually add the onion (when I do it) at begin. You might do it with or without onion. With onion will be more juicy but, I prefer to do it without. Also, you might like to eat it fresh made when still warm which is very good but do not hesitate to keep it for next day and eat it cold, you will enjoy it even more. ?Tortilla de patata? (Spanish omelette or Spanish potatoes omelette) makes a perfect picnic for eating outdoors and it is easy to transport even in a simple lunchbox in your backpack. You might also carry it for a lunch at your work site. To give ot your own touch or make different versions and styles you might add to the blend of potatoes and eggs some ?chorizo frito? fried green or red peppers (or both together), fried Iberian ham, shrimps, green peas, carrots, etc. Easy and taste recipe . . . hope you enjoy it!!

    This was very good. I made the basic version and I thought it had plenty of flavor. I thought about putting cheese on it, but somehow the potatoes made it seem creamy and it didn't need cheese. Next time I might add some fresh herbs like chives or parsley, but it is great as it is.

    Comfort food in the AM or PM. I added the eggs right to the potatoes and onions couldn`t wait. Topped with cheese. Not as pretty as if you used a fresh pan to make the eggs and then fill with potatoes and onions. So I`m not posting a pictures for the one there is beautiful.

<p>I am a stay at home mom of two children, although, both now are in college. I am a retired Occupational Therapist. I received my degree from the Ohio State University and am a huge fan of the Ohio State Buckeyes. <br /><br /><a href=http://s169.photobucket.com/albums/u208/diner_photos/?action=view?t=BRITTANY08XMAS.jpg target=_blank><img src=http://i169.photobucket.com/albums/u208/diner_photos/BRITTANY08XMAS.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /></a> <br /><br /><a href=http://s169.photobucket.com/albums/u208/diner_photos/?action=view?t=DEREK08XMAS.jpg target=_blank><img src=http://i169.photobucket.com/albums/u208/diner_photos/DEREK08XMAS.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /></a> <br /><br /><br /><br />I have so many cook books that it is hard to pick one as my favorite, but would say I have used the Betty Crocker Cookbook the most since getting married for basic recipes. <br />I love to cook and try new recipes, but prefer simple and quick recipes. I don't like to cook things that require going to specialized grocery stores. I subscribe to several cooking magazines, that usually, require everyday on-hand ingredients. <br /><br />I am not very fond of most seafood, but do enjoy lobster, grilled shrimp and chilean sea bass. I won't cook anything with rosemary or curry, as I really don't like either herbs' flavor. And now from trying recipes, I found that I don't like dijon mustard, but love vinegar and mustard, not sure why I don't like the taste of dijon mustard.</p> <p><br /><br /><br /><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/Adopted1smp.jpg border=0 alt=Photo /><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/smPACp.jpg border=0 alt=Photo /> <br /><br /><br /><br /><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/projects/200_PACpic.jpg border=0 alt=Photo /> <img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/projects/pacbanner.jpg border=0 alt=Photo /> <br /><br /><a href=http://photobucket.com target=_blank><img src=http://i169.photobucket.com/albums/u208/diner_photos/ZWT3-Participation.gif border=0 alt=Photo /></a> <br /><br /><img src=http://www.satsleuth.com/cooking/RecipeSwap2.JPG alt=/ /> <br /><img src=http://www.recipezaar.com/members/home/1535/CLC1.gif alt=/ /> <br /><br /><img src=http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b280/carolinamoon21/Derfcookathon.jpg alt=/ /> <br /><br /><img src=http://i42.photobucket.com/albums/e347/Saturn6666/Other/tagforpage1.jpg alt=/ /> <br /><br /><img src=http://i273.photobucket.com/albums/jj240/marienixon_715/kittencaljpg.jpg alt=/ /> <br /><br /><a href=http://s7.photobucket.com/albums/y254/Missymop/?action=view?t=gumnuts.jpg target=_blank><img src=http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y254/Missymop/gumnuts.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /></a> <br /><br /><img src=http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y53/DUCHESS13/RSC%20Banners/RSC11-Diner.jpg alt=/ /> <br /><img src=http://www.satsleuth.com/cooking/Swap14.JPG alt=/ /> <br /><br /><br />Adopted banner: <br /><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/adoptedspring08.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br /><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/PAC08Main.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br /><br /><img src=http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b280/carolinamoon21/Ingredients/TasteofYellowSTICKER.jpg alt=/ /> <br /><br /><img src=http://i10.photobucket.com/albums/a132/tgifford/ZWT4/gastronomic%20gauchos/GGneon-logo.gif alt=/ /> <br /><br /><img src=http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y53/DUCHESS13/Zaar%20World%20Tour%204/ZWTAB-tg.gif alt=/ /> <br /><br /><img src=http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b280/carolinamoon21/Ingredients/BBQlSTKR.jpg alt=/ /> <img src=http://i10.photobucket.com/albums/a132/tgifford/Game%20Room%20Banners/AM%20Banners/ZaarStar-AMBanner.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br /><img src=http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b280/carolinamoon21/Ingredients/CROCKPOTSTKR.jpg alt=/ /> <br /><br /><img src=http://i68.photobucket.com/albums/i25/bayhill/footballpool-1.jpg alt=/ /> <br /><img src=http://i161.photobucket.com/albums/t237/akplongmeadow/AdoptATag2-2-1.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br /><img src=http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b280/carolinamoon21/Ingredients/Other/BreakfastanytimeSTCK.jpg alt=/ /> <br /><img src=http://i270.photobucket.com/albums/jj81/HokiesLady65/totmtaggame-1.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br /><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/PACfall08partic.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br /><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/IWasAdoptedfall08.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br /><br /><a href=http://easyhitcounters.com/stats.php?site=diner524 target=_top><img src=http://beta.easyhitcounters.com/counter/index.php?u=diner524&amp;s=blgrv border=0 alt=Website hspace=4 vspace=2 align=middle /></a> <br /><a href=http://easyhitcounters.com/ target=_top>Free Counter</a> <br /><a href=http://s169.photobucket.com/albums/u208/diner_photos/?action=view?t=lazymecookathon.jpg target=_blank><img src=http://i169.photobucket.com/albums/u208/diner_photos/lazymecookathon.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /></a> <br /><img src=http://i250.photobucket.com/albums/gg271/MrsTeny/Permanent%20Collection/AMPageBanner.jpg alt=/ /> <br /><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/captain.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br /><br /><a href=http://s169.photobucket.com/albums/u208/diner_photos/?action=view&curren;t=Samsbutton.jpg target=_blank><img src=http://i169.photobucket.com/albums/u208/diner_photos/Samsbutton.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /></a></p>
