They may seem long, but aside from the flip (which took comical teamwork, thank you Lee!), the tortilla is very easy to make.
- In a medium bowl, toss the potato, onion, and peppers together. Add 1 tablespoon of the oil, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Stir to coat well.
- Heat 2 teaspoons more oil in an 8" non-stick skillet over medium-low heat.
- Add the potato mixture to the skillet, cover and cook, stirring occasionally, until the potatoes are tender, 10 - 12 minutes.
- Meanwhile whisk the eggs, 1/4 teaspoons salt, 1/4 teaspoon pepper together in a medium bowl until just combined.
- Using a rubber spatula, fold the hot potato mixture into the eggs until combined, making sure to scrape all of the potato mixture out of the skillet.
- Heat the remaining 1 teaspoon oil in the skillet over medium-high heat until shimmering. Add the egg mixture and cook, shaking the pan constantly for 30 seconds. Smooth the top with a rubber spatula, folding down any of the egg mixture that has built up along the sides.
- Cover and cook, gently shaking the skillet every minute, until the bottom is golden brown and the top is lightly set, about 5 minutes.
- Loosen the sides of the tortilla with the rubber spatula. Place a large plate over the skillet, and invert the tortilla onto the plate. Taking another plate, invert the tortilla again (the wet side will be up). Place the skillet over the tortilla, and flip one last time into the skillet. Phew!
- Return the skillet to medium heat and continue to cook, gently shaking the skillet every minute or so, until the second side is gold brown, 2 - 4 minutes.
- Slide the tortilla onto a serving plate and let cool. Slice like a pizza, and enjoy, hot or cold.
