Spanish Tortilla

Growing up in a house where my mother is Chilean and my father is Chilean/Italian, 
food was an infusion of many cultures. Chilean dishes, mixed in with Italian, 
and of course my mom made sure to incorporate the dishes from the U.S.

I grew up eating tortilla. In fact I didn't know that a tortilla could also be the yummy flat-bread-type that Mexicans use in their cooking until about 6th grade {we didn't go out to eat much growing up}.
I used to think tortilla de papas was a Chilean dish, but have now figured out its roots originated from Spain.  Makes sense since they did colonize South America.

The other day when I was at my parents house my mom had made some 
and it'd been a while since I had some. I quickly heated up a slice, followed by a second slice.
It's one of those comfort foods that brings back nostalgic memories of my childhood.
It's creamy, buttery, and crunchy on the edges. Basically all of my favorite components when
it comes to food. I've been seeing recipes all over the internet of
Spanish Tortilla and have been wanting to try some recipes. I found this one on Bon Appetite 
and am thinking its time I learn to make this dish.
