In Spain, a tortilla is a thin omelet served at room temperature. Roasted potato slices fill this version, while a sharp, tangy red bell pepper sauce tops it. The sauce can be prepared up to 3 days ahead; serve warm, at room temperature, or chilled. Continue your head start by roasting the potato slices early on the day of the party.

Add tomato and next 10 ingredients (tomato through bread); process mixture until smooth.

  • To prepare tortilla, combine potato slices and 2 teaspoons olive oil on a jelly roll pan coated with cooking spray. Arrange potato slices in a single layer; sprinkle with 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon black pepper. Bake potatoes at 350° for 40 minutes or until tender, turning after 20 minutes. Remove potato slices from oven.
