Playing Rach's "Tortilla" BLD Meal (Spanish Omelette)

"This is a classic Spanish dish," says Rach. It's called a tortilla, but it's not a tortilla like you use for tacos. It's a potato and egg omelette that often includes onions. You can eat it as is or with things like Serrano ham and Manchego (either slice the cooked tortilla horizontally and put the ham and cheese between the two layers or place them on top or on the side). Here, Rach also stirs roasted piquillo peppers into the egg mixture. The recipe is affordable, quick and easy and, as she puts it, "so perfect" for breakfast/brunch, lunch or dinner (BLD). "I hope you like it!" she adds.
