Very simple, tasted good, made this one and a similar alteration with chorizo and some other spanish meats, went down well and guests were pleased. Good receipe for entertaining as it doesn't take too long.

Light. Fresh. Flavoursome. And a great mid week supper. Had a large glass of Primitivo which matched perfectly with the spice.

The chili is not used at spanish meals as is a mexican spice, but I'm going to try it.

An advice: try to use olive oil instead of sunflower oil to get a much more tasty tortilla ;)

my mums going to cook it one day and tonight we are having nigels cheese and thyme puddings

I had some chicken to use up so fried that off first and added it when the potatoes went in, and used all the chilli in the cooking rather than at the end and left the tomatoes out due to family tastes...I could do with a bigger pan to mix everything in so all the ingredients were coated with the spices. I am already thinking up other versions to make, as the other half commented it was a really nice different meal...I wonder if the leftover slice in the fridge will still be there in the morning??

Did not like this one bit I am afraid.

My other half loves this he said its better warm than cold, and better the day after as its had time to sit in the fridge and develop flavour

I loved this, the spices gave it a unique flavour. As always when Im making a spanish omlette I find it works better if the potatoes are cooked and left in fridge overnight.

Tasty spicy tortilla which makes a nice change from the norm. Great warm but even better cold - the spices really come through.

Sean - I didn't have any problem with the egg burning on the bottom, and I've got an electric hob. It just went a lovely golden colour.

I hope to make this soon, but reading through the comments I'm wondering, shat do you have to do to stop the egg on the base from burning? Thanks

Completely yummy. I made with sweet potatoes instead to make it healthier and it really was delicious. I also served with a salad made from diced cucumber, grated carrot and a little yohurt.

Tasty for a midweek meal, although seemed to take a long time to make.

I added all the chilli at the initial cooking stage, rather than scattering half over the top at the end. Also made it for 3 (2 for dinner, one for lunch the next day) using 6 eggs, 2 smalllish potatoes and 2006 cherry toms.

Served it with salad,yoghurt and mango chutney, which went down well.

Very tasty. But I also noticed that it took a lot longer to cook thoroughly. Tastes good with a little bacon through it as well.

I loved this recipe! Took it cold to a picnic and it went down a treat. I was a bit worried at the amount of cherry tomatoes as it seemed a lot when I tipped them in, but worked out fine. Mine took longer to cook also.

Saw this recipe in a back issue at my friend's in France! Made it for lunch this week and it was delicious. Took longer to cook than it stated but my pan was smaller.
Would have liked to have had some cold for lunch the next day but that was not happening

Really tasty - and have some left for lunch which is good. Thought it took quite a bit longer to cook than suggested...About twice as long but then maybe I was using a smaller pan.
