    What are you rambling about? I was merely pointing out that the word "tortilla" was misappropriated by Spanish occupiers. It was an indigenous food first so how did the dumbass omelette get the name?

    Kind of like the whole "biscuit" thing. What the word brings to mind largely depends on where you grow up.

    misapplied.

    torta = cake
    tortilla = lil cake.....they're spanish words....

    easy to see why they might call an omelet a cake.....Mexican tortilla as a small cake not so obvious (imo) but in the ball park anyway.....


    i wonder what the Aztecs called 'tortillas?

    Tlaxcalli is what I found. Easier to eat than to pronounce.

    Back on topic....


    Should have started small with a four egg Tortilla instead of a dozen, that why it turned into a disaster. Greed!
    I think I deleted the pic, but it's somewhere on this site.
    The burnt 12 egg Tortilla abortion pic.

    Gonna bang up some pics of the new improved version soon and a few authentic Tortillas and Spanish omelettes direct from the Tapas bar in Spain.

    No mention in the recipe of chopped green chilis (Jalapenos ?) they add a lot to a bland dish.
    Its good bachelor food as you can have it over several days, breakfast, dinner whatever.
    Works well with baked beans as a side dish. Well, I am a Brit...

    Dunno what others call it, but for me growing up that dish was called a Spanish omelette.

    Huevos revueltos y papas fritas (scrambled eggs and fried potatoes still wouldn't be a bad result).

    It's a constant learning curve Reachy, check out the last 6 pages of threads in the kitchen if your really interested.

    Or are you backing up Princess?

    Judging by that repo, i'd say a resounding yes.

    I'm gonna name that aborted Tortilla above after your little circle.

    Any ideas for a name anyone?

    Obviously its a cooking website. I was going to use leftovers from last night to make a Spanish omelette but in the morning I was too sick so I got drunk instead. So it goes.

    Today was little different. But I didn't get into a fight. Thats an improvement.

    https://www.spain-recipes.com/spicy-...-tortilla.html

    You don't get these in Spain save at home or with a girlfriend.

    This is how it goes.

    The word tortilla IS Spanish, you div. It wasn't misappropriated by anyone. It's a Spanish word (from Spain and not from anywhere else) meaning originally round and flat.

    If they'd appropriated it from the natives of Mexico we'd be calling it a Tlaxcalli! The Spanish saw the Mexica flatbreads and thought "how the fick do you pronounce Tlaxcalli anyway, I'm going to call that thing a tortilla because it's round, flat, and edible".
