2 large potatoes
1/2 onion
1/4 red bell pepper
5 tbs. olive oil
Salt

Instructions
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.
