Yummy Recipe Post: Chorizo And Crisps Tortilla

As a change I thought for a new blog post I would share a really yummy recipe I've recently discovered! - Chorizo and crisps tortilla (the cheat version)

The tortilla is really simple to make and goes perfectly with a light salad and coleslaw when the sun's out, or French bread and baked beans on a more rainy day. 

The ingredients you need are the following:

  • 25 g bag of good quality crisps
  • ½ onion
  • 200 g chorizo sausage
  • Olive oil for frying
  • A pinch of table salt
You could also add peppers, herbs or real sliced potatoes for a more authentic spanish taste. 

How to make it:

1. Slice the onion thinly and fry on a non-sticking pan with a splash of oliver oil over a high heat, stirring from time to time. 

2. Add the chopped chorizo and cook for a further 2 mins. 

3. Mix the crisps with the onion, chorizo and eggs and season with salt. If possible pour the mixture into a jug or bowl and leave to soak for at least 30 mins.

4. Wipe the pan and bring back to the stove over a medium heat. Drizzle olive oil and pour the tortilla mixture into the pan  and lower the heat.

5. After 5 minutes, cover the pan with a plate (always wider than the pan) and, holding it tight with your hand, flip the tortilla onto the plate. Then slide the un-side-cooked tortilla back into the pan.

6. Serve whilst warm.
