This recipe is good, but I have tried about 10 different versions on the Spanish tortilla and most of them do not include ham or bell pepper. They also include more salt and pepper. The other super important thing is that you need to cook the tortilla on medium low heat so the bottom doesn't burn before you flip it. Flip it over with the aid of a plate, platter or another frying pan of equal or larger size. Please don't cook the tortilla over medium heat though, or it will burn. As my Spanish friend who came over to my house and taught me how to make it said: "fuego lento" (low/slow flame) is the key. Along with patience.

pretty good-- cut down on grease (and fat) by making it vegetarian... also, I had to add more eggs (6 instead of four)than called for...

This was soo good!!! I added about 3 cloves of garlic and omitted the bell pepper, just to have the more classic version of the Tortilla Espanola!!! This is normally eaten at room temperature, but you can't go wrong no matter how you serve it!
