The Other Tortilla

With one kind of tortilla, you can make chilaquiles or huevos a la mexicana. But there’s a different sort of eggs and tortilla altogether. The tortilla española is Spain’s version of the French omelet or the Italian fritatta. The traditional tortilla has potatoes and onions, but you can add just about anything you have on […]

More Mexican Eats: Chilaquiles
