Spanish Tortillas
"SPANISH TORTILLA- NEW RECIPE I had too many potatoes and eggs in the pantry of course the first thing that came into my mind was tortilla. I made this as simple as possible with around 5 ingredients. Have this with a nice summer salad, tomatoes, rice, or do what I did and have it with another tortilla! (Yes, i made two😂) You can remix this and add mixed peppers, cheese, vegetables, meat, pretty much anything."
