Gather all ingredients. Make sure you have all the ingredients measured out and ready to go before you start cooking. This will help to ensure a smooth and efficient cooking process.

Chop the onion. Peel and chop the onion into small pieces. This will add flavor and texture to the tortilla.

Slice the potatoes. Peel and slice the potatoes into thin rounds. This will ensure that they cook evenly and quickly.

Cook the potatoes. Heat the reserved oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the potatoes and cook, stirring occasionally, until the potatoes are tender, about 10 minutes.

Drain the potatoes. Drain the cooked potatoes and onion in a colander. This will remove excess oil and prevent the tortilla from becoming greasy.

Cook the onion

Combine potatoes and onion.

Beat the eggs. In a bowl, whisk together the eggs until well combined. This will create a base for the tortilla.

Combine potatoes, onion, and eggs. Season with salt and pepper.

Cook the tortilla for 4 minutes. Cook the tortilla for 4 minutes or until the bottom is set and slightly golden brown.

Flip the tortilla. Use a large plate to flip the tortilla over carefully. This will require some dexterity, so be careful not to spill the eggs.

Cook the tortilla for 3 minutes more. Cook the tortilla for an additional 3 minutes, or until the second side is set and golden brown.

Serve warm.
