I just found that out, Caine. I didn't know there was a difference. That's why I love this place!

Little did I know that I've been making Spanish tortilla for the last 20 years.

I also make simular thing with noodles, wonder if that would be Italian tortilla?

Actually, I just realized my Texan is showing. Unfortunately in Texas, Spanish and Mexican is often used interchangeably but clearly, there is a huge difference in the culture and the cuisine.

My head is spinning already, Charlie. You can't throw an Italian tortilla at me now!

Fisher's Mom, a Spanish tortilla is not a Mexican tortilla. It is sorta like a frittata made with onions and taters. Very tasty.

The recipe I saw sounds wonderful. I can't wait to try it. Potatoes are big at my house and this would be a yummy new way to have them. Thanks for suggesting this because I'd never heard of a Spanish Tortilla!

Well I just helped her make flan and it's cooling. Hopefully I can get it out of the pan and onto a plate. The tortilla sounded great so now I'm going to make that for dinner on Sat. Thanks for all the help. Now my DD won't fail Spanish.

CharlieD- Her and a friend made Spanish rice last year for culture day it went over good, she wanted something different this year.

Buenelos

My daughters have taken these to school when they did a report on Mexico. They were a big hit with the kids.

Buenelos
Flour tortillas, cut into fourths (or smaller to make it go farther)
Hot oil
Cinnamon and sugar


Put enough oil in skillet to cover the tortilla, heat. When oil it hot, fry tortilla until lightly brown. Remove and sprinkle with sugar and cinnamon.
