Cut potatoes into small thin pieces
Add potatoes to frying pan
Peel and dice the onion
Add the onion to the potatoes on the frying pan and mix together and add salt to your liking

Using a plate that is bigger than the pan, place it over the pan and flip the tortilla over and slide the uncooked side to cook for another 3 minutes
Slide the tortilla into a plate and let rest for at least 5 minutes

This is one of my greatest discoveries. I made my first Spanish tortilla this past month and I think I’ve gone back and made it again like six times!
What a fun and simple recipe. I made one for my neighbour and he loved it as well. It is delicious! It’s hard to believe that it is so cheap and easy to make!27 . Jun . 2021

Thank you! I’ve looked all over for a version that actually tasted right. They all added extra stuff, or cooked the potatoes in water, or some other nonsense. This turned out perfect. It’s simple and depends for it’s flavor on quality ingredients. It’s just what I was looking for.
