If your first thought upon reading the title of this post had anything to do with chips or taco shells, you're not alone. Yes, tortillas come in corn and flour varieties, and they can be fried into crisp, dip-ready chips. But the tortilla pictured above isn't a wrap or a chip at all. This tortilla — a traditional Spanish dish — is a savory baked pie, of sorts, with a base of hearty potatoes.

Featured in Food Network Magazine, this easy-to-make dish is ideal for both brunch and lunch. It features thinly sliced potatoes, which are first sauteed with onions so they turn out tender. Before baking, the potatoes are combined with beaten eggs, which helps to bind the spuds as they cook and ensures they can be sliced into even wedges upon serving. Since the tortilla moves from the stove to the oven within minutes, be sure to start the process in an ovenproof skillet — using just a single pan will help to build the flavors. For a welcome burst of freshness, serve the golden-brown tortilla with a simple but bold lemon-laced salad of fragrant parsley and sweet piquillo peppers.
