    Tortilla de Papas y Chorizo

    The chorizo in this Spanish tortilla makes this recipe special.  

    green bell pepper, chopped
    cloves of garlic, minced
    Spanish style chorizo, cut into 1/4 inch pieces (about 5 ounces)
    medium Yukon gold potatoes, peeled and cut into slices 1/4 inch think
    medium yellow onion, chopped
    large eggs, well beaten
    salt (more to taste)
    extra virgin olive oil
    Heat one tablespoon of the olive oil in large heavy skillet over medium heat. Add the chorizo and sauté until lightly browned, about 2-3 minutes.
    Add the peppers and garlic and sauté, about 3 minutes. Remove the chorizo and peppers from the pan and set aside.
    Add the remaining olive oil to skillet and return to medium heat. Add the potatoes and onions to the skillet and turn with a spatula, careful not to let them brown.
    Sauté until the potatoes are just tender and break apart with slight pressure from the spatula, about 20 minutes.
    Beat the eggs with the salt in a separate bowl.
    Remove potatoes and onions with a slotted spoon and add to the beaten eggs. Add the chorizo-peppers mixture and combine. Adjust salt to taste.
    Pour out all but about 1 tablespoon of oil and set aside.* Add the egg mixture to the skillet and cook over medium heat until the eggs begin to set and the underside is lightly browned.
    Take the skillet off the burner and cover with a large plate. Holding the plate down firmly, quickly turn over the skillet so that the tortilla slides out onto the plate.
    Return skillet to medium heat and add additional oil if needed. Slide tortilla back into the skillet and cook on the other side, an additional 5-7 minutes until it reaches desired degree of doneness.
    Flip the tortilla one more time onto serving plate. Serve at room temperature, sliced into wedges or cut into squares.
