Tortilla de Papas (Potato Omelet)


4 beaten eggs

1 ½ large potato peeled and sliced

Vegetable or corn oil to fry potatoes

3 tbsp ham chopped

1tbsp minced onion

Salt to taste

Pepper to taste

2 tbsp olive oil for frying omelet

Ketchup for garnish 

(Variations: You can also add fried ripe plantain. To do this: fry about ½ ripe plantain. Cut it in round thin slices before frying, once fried, cut in small pieces and add to the omelet mixture before cooking)


Chop ham into small squared-like pieces. Peel and slice potatoes into round slices about ¼ inch thick and 1 inch round. Sprinkle with a little bit of salt and fry them in hot oil, put them aside. Beat whole eggs and add ham and fried potatoes.

On a medium size skillet, add about 2 tbsp of olive oil and heat it. Add and cook the egg mixture on medium-low heat until cooked, turning it once after about 5 to 7 mins. Remove from heat and place on a serving dish. Add ketchup to taste, if desired.
