    Will try that recipe, Elle. The best tortilla should be moist. That’s why the freshly-made tortilla tastes better than the one that’s been sitting drying for god knows how long.

    I hope you enjoy it, Matthew! This is a nice moist recipe – which is probably why it doesn’t last very long around me ;)

    It’s very similar to the way as I do mine! The only difference is that I sometimes par-boil my potatoes a little. It certainly is easier finishing it off under the grill! :-)

    Yes… I tried parboiling too… but found it quicker just to do it this way if from scratch.

    Great way to use up extra boiled spuds from last night’s dinner though!

    Ooh sorry Phil – I haven’t included them in the ingredient list have I? I will amend that now. I find that one large one finely diced is perfect.

    Sounds exactly how I do it!! Although I don’t use garlic, but I will next time as I love garlic! :-) Works with a bit on bacon as well.
