A Spanish tortilla.

Easy to make and great served at room temp.

My Spanish cookbook is buried under all kinds of stuff we are doing at the moment.

Just Google, it is a classic and easily found recipe.

Merry Christmas.

That's a great suggestion, Aunt Dot. There is a really good video by the director Robert Rodriguez on YouTube where he shows how to make flour tortillas.

My mother used to work in the kitchen and this is what they used to do: Make rice slightly undercook. Then:

2 cups cooked rice
sautee 2-3 table spoons of onion
2-3 spoons of red pepper
add rice
2-3 table spoons stewed diced tomato either canned or even fresh
1-2-3 tspoons hot red sauce (depending how hot you want).
mix well hit up rice thru. Done. Doesn't get any easier than this.

ISO easy spanish recipe
Just as Aunt Dot said: Spanish tortilla (potato omelette) is easy to make and also goodt served at room temp. One of my friends used to cut in small cubes and put on those muffins paper cups. Here is an address to a video How-to make the tortilla
How To Make Spanish Tortilla Recipe (Food & Drink: Vegetable)
If you prefer something sweet and delicious, you can look for the flan

Hope this will help

Oh gosh, I thought ya'll were talking about plain old flour tortillas. The Spanish Tortilla looks wonderful! I've never heard of this but I think I'll have to try it, too.

A Spanish tortilla doesn't involve wheat or corn flour. That would be a Mexican tortilla. A Spanish tortilla is pretty much the same as an Italian fritatta.

A great standard Spanish recipe, one that even gets mentioned in most Spanish language lessons, is the traditional Arroz con Pollo (Chicken & Rice).


ARROZ CON POLLO

1 2 to 3 pound chicken, cut up
2 Tbs canola oil
1 cups long grain rice
1 medium onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
3 cups chicken broth
1 eight ounce can of crushed tomatoes
1 tsp salt
tsp pepper
1 cup frozen peas, thawed

In a large saute pan over medium heat, brown chicken in canola oil. Remove chicken from pan. Use the drippings in the pan to cook the rice, onions and garlic until the rice is golden brown. Add chicken broth, undrained tomatoes, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil and stir well. Arrange chicken on top of rice mixture, cover, and simmer for 30 to 35 minutes, until rice is fully cooked. Add peas, cover, and cook for 5 minutes more.
