Tortilla de papas, or potato omelets, will always remind me to my tía Gela. She was Spanish and the one who taught me to prepare them in Madrid. Despite her old age, she enthusiastically taught me to prepare these omelets. That afternoon with her, I learned about the ingredients it takes and a simple technique to put this tasty recipe together.
In Spain, tortilla de papas can be found nearly everywhere. It’s served as a snack, sandwich filling, as an appetizer with a green salad or even as a light meal. Everyone loves it!
I hope you like this recipe. The advantage is that it can be prepared ahead of time since they’re delicious at room temperature. I’m so tempted just from writing these lines that I’m going to prepare one right now!
