Serves 3 people

Ingredients

  • 1 medium onion

  • Peel and wash the potatoes. Cut into fairly thin slices or dice finely.
  • Cut onion into julienne.
  • In a deep frying pan, pour olive oil and allow it to heat a little. Then add the potatoes and onion.
  • Maintain medium heat to cook the potatoes and onion. Set aside to remove excess oil.
  • In a bowl, beat the eggs until they become foamy.

  • Pour two tablespoons of olive oil in the pan and pour in the contents of the bowl.
  • Cook until the mixture starts to boil.
  • Place a large plate on top of the stove and then with a quick movement, turn the pan to flip the tortilla into the plate.
