A friend from Argentina made a very similar dish as an appetizer. She served it with tomato/pepper salsa and called it 'tortilla'. I always wished I had asked her for the recipe. I was browsing ToH one time and ran across this omelet that sounded so much like my friend's dish that I had to try it. It may not be identical to hers, but it tastes as near to it as I can remember. I've made it many times since for both breakfast and as a party appetizer -- it's good room temperature and even cold!
