This Potato Chip Spanish Tortilla recipe is just the thing for an easy weeknight meal. You only need three ingredients and five minutes–start to finish– to get this dinner on the table!
Middle of the week means we need an easy weeknight dinner. For that, I love this Potato Chip Spanish Tortilla.
Technically there’s nothing wrong with serving this for breakfast, as it’s an egg dish. I’m not sure I can get on board with potato chips for breakfast, though.
RIGHT. The potato chips. The elephant in the room. I almost completely forgot to talk about those darn things.
Okay, so I had a Spanish tortilla while I was visiting Barcelona recently (I’ve shared a few pictures from that trip on Instagram, if you’re interested ;)), and I fell in love with it. I’ve made “authentic” style tortillas (Spanish-style potato omelets), and while I ADORE them, they can be a bit of work. Like, quite a bit for a weeknight.
I read about using potato chips as a substitute on The Food Lab and was super intrigued. I tried it, and loved the way it turned out! It’s not as amazing as the real thing, but it makes a darn good 5 minutes meal. I used thick-cut (kettle-style) black pepper chips and let me just say YUM.
This dish makes a great base for toppings. This time I just used some halved cherry tomatoes, fresh herbs, and cracked pepper. Remember that awesome tomato sauce from Monday? Yeah, that would be really good on this, too.
This makes a filling dinner-for-one, or cut it in half and serve each piece with a simple salad. A glass of red wine wouldn’t be amiss here, either.
