Updated January 27, 2012

Ingredients

  • 6 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 cups sliced (1/8 inch) small red potatoes (about 8)
  • 1 cup red bell pepper strips (2x1/4x1/4 inch)
  • 1 medium onion, halved, thinly sliced
  • 8 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 8 oz Spanish chorizo sausage, cut into 1/4-inch slices

Steps

  • 1
    In 12-inch ovenproof nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Cook potatoes, bell pepper and onion in oil 15 minutes, stirring occasionally, until very tender but not brown. Remove from heat.
  • 2
    In large bowl, beat eggs, salt and pepper with wire whisk until well blended. Stir in chorizo.
  • 3
    Set oven control to broil. Pour egg mixture into skillet, spreading evenly over potato mixture. Cook 5 minutes, without stirring, until bottom and edges are set.
  • 4
    Transfer skillet to oven; broil with top about 8 inches from heat 5 minutes or until top is just set. Place heatproof serving plate upside down over skillet; turn plate and skillet over. Remove skillet. Let stand 10 minutes before serving. Cut into 2-inch squares.

  • Spanish chorizo is a dry-cured pork sausage flavored with smoked paprika and similar in texture to salami. Don’t confuse it with Mexican chorizo, which looks more like bulk pork sausage.
