Spanish Style Tortilla with Red Peppers (a la Rachael Ray – http://bit.ly/yX5LEn for original)
- 1pkg hot sausage (Chorizo, or hot pork sausage)- casing off
- 1 Red Bell pepper sliced thin
- 4 Tomatoes, de-seeded (reserved) and sliced thin
- 2 cloves Garlic
- 1 Pkg of sliced Crimini Mushrooms
- 1 C Cilantro
- 12 eggs, beaten
- 4 C lightly crushed tortilla chips
- Cheddar Cheese
Pre-heat oven to 450 degrees. In skillet on med heat, brown the sausage and reserved tomato seed/gel (the Test Kitchen says the most Tomato flavor can be found in the gel and seeds, but they contribute a ton of moisture, so I saute them up with the sausage.)
Add the Tomatoes Onion, Peppers, Mushrooms and Garlic and stir. Let cook until only a little tender. (Make sure the mushrooms are cooked completely, or else they will continue to add moisture to the dish and it will not set. Top with Tortilla Chips, lightly crushed, and stir to incorporate. Fill in with beaten Eggs, wait until partially set and put whole skillet into the oven at 450 deg.
Bake for 15 min until cooked through. Top with the cheddar cheese and broil for 3 min.
