Caramelized Onion Tortilla Espanola

The word tortilla for many Americans, represent mexican and southern American corn, flour type tortillas. However, for Europeans the word tortilla brings a heavy egg tapa to mind. Tapas, the famous Spanish snacks, have showcased many versions of this potato filled delicacy.
