Spanish Pincho de Tortilla

Everyone loves a good, fruit-filled glass of sangria — especially the Spaniards. To help cure a sangria-induced hangover, make some pincho de tortilla, a tapa dish similar to a frittata. But why bother waiting until morning? This tasty dish is good any time of day — whether or not you have a hangover!


3-4 eggs
2 large potatoes
1/2 onion
1/4 red bell pepper
5 tbs. olive oil

In an oiled frying pan, sauté the red bell pepper, potatoes and onions on low heat. Crack an egg into a bowl; then add the pepper, potatoes and onions from the pan, and mix it all together. Pour everything into a skillet or nonstick pan, cover the lid and cook for 5 minutes over low heat. Flip it over and let it slide off the pan onto a plate. Cut it into cubes, put a toothpick (pincho is the Spanish word for thorn) in each of them, and you’re good to go.
