Mixing the eggs.

Serves 2 to 4

Cape Cod chips, which are a little thicker than most, work well, though any brand will do. If you want to further channel Spain, plus expand your kid’s palate, sprinkle in some slivered Serrano ham.

2cups potato chips, lightly crushed
1tablespoon olive oil

Whisk eggs in a bowl, then stir in the potato chips. Let sit for five minutes. Slick a small hot nonstick skillet with the oil, then pour in the egg mixture. After about two minutes, turn onto a plate, then slide the uncooked side facedown into the skillet and cook for another minute, or until cooked through. Slide the tortilla onto a plate, cut into pieces and serve. Ted Weesner
