Spanish Potato and Chorizo Tortilla

from Starting with Ingredients by Aliza Green.

Spanish Potato and Chorizo Tortilla
Note: A Spanish tortilla is a cooked egg dish, similar to a flat omelet.

2 lbs gold or all purpose potatoes (peel or unpeeled)
2 Tbs olive oil
kosher salt and pepper, to taste
1 tsp sweet paprika*
1 tsp pimenton*
1 lb Spanish chorizo sausage (or hot Italian sausages)
½ cup chopped Italian parsley
8 eggs, lightly beaten

Preheat the oven to 400°. Cut potatoes into ½-inch thick slices. Toss with olive oil, salt, pepper, paprika, and pimenton.

Roast for 30 minutes. At the same time, prick the chorizo and roast in the oven until browned. Remove the potatoes and sausage from the oven. Drain off any fat, and slice the chorizo. Combine potatoes, chorizo, and parsley with the eggs.

Pour mixture into a lightly oiled cast-iron skillet or a shallow 8- to 9-inch oiled casserole dish. Place on the top shelf of the oven and bake until the eggs are set, about 15 minutes. Cool slightly, cut into wedges, and serve.

*We just used regular paprika.
