Chorizo, paprika-flavored pork sausage is salty and often quite spicy.

Eggs are a staple and one of the most popular uses for eggs is the Spanish omelet, or tortilla, a thick omelet prepared in a large skillet with a heavy bottom without turning.

This often includes potatoes and onions or other vegetables or meats being sauteed first before adding the egg mixture. Served thickly sliced, tortillas are often served as tapas, a plate of various snacks available at bars.
