▷ Spanish Recipe: Tortilla Tapas



A closer relative to the Italian frittata than a Mexican flour or corn tortilla, a Spanish tortilla is so much more than the sum of its humble parts. Potatoes are the star, but tortillas welcome variation. The tortilla makes an excellent breakfast, lunch, dinner, snack, or crowd-pleasing tapa.
