Chef Chris Valdes' Miami Tortilla Española


Serves 4 to 6

1/4 cup olive oil

4 medium russet potatoes, peeled, and thinly sliced

1 sweet plantain, medium dice

1 medium onion, peeled, and thinly sliced

1 medium green bell pepper, medium dice

½ chorizo, diced

6 large eggs, beaten

Salt and pepper to taste


1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.

2. Heat oil over medium-high heat in a 10" saute pan. Add potatoes, sweet plantain, onions, peppers, chorizo, and cook until potatoes and plantains are cooked and brown for about 15 minutes.

3. In a large bowl, add eggs, a pinch of salt and pepper, and whisk. Add the whisked eggs to the pan. Bake until eggs are firm and golden brown, about 20 minutes.

4. Slide a spatula along the edges and underneath the tortilla. Place a large plate over the pan and quickly turn the plate and pan over so the tortilla falls onto the plate. Cut into wedges and serve at room temperature.
