Caribbean Spanish Egg Tortilla


  1. Whisk eggs in a small bowl and set aside
  2. Chop onion, bell peppers, mushroom, jalapeño, cilantro, and garlic into small pieces.
  3. Place skillet over medium heat and melt the butter until small bubbles start to form at the edges.
  4. Sauté veggies in the butter until tender (adjust heat to medium-high, if desired)
  5. Add whisked eggs into the skillet and incorporate into the sautéed vegetables. Turn the heat to low and cover the skillet with a lid.
  6. Let set for 10-12 minutes.
  7. Carefully flip the tortilla to cook the other side (this takes a lot of practice...if you can't manage to flip over the whole tortilla, cut it in half and flip each half one at a time).
  8. Turn off the heat, and add shredded cheese on top (to make cheese melt faster, cover the skillet with lid and let it set for a few minutes minutes.)
  9. Garnish with cilantro leaves and enjoy!

Recipe Notes

Serve over rice and beans, hash browns, or a green salad...or even wrap it in a corn or flour tortilla to make a delicious taco!
