Tortilla de Papas (from Spain)

4 to 5 big size potatoes
4 eggs
Salt, pepper and smoked paprika (optional)
3 garlic cloves
Olive Oil
Start by peeling the potatoes and cutting them into thin, circular slices. Heat up the oil in a medium-big pan with medium temperature and put the garlic cloves in (without peeling the garlic) and then add your potato slices.
Stir potatoes frequently so they are cooked evenly. Meanwhile, take your eggs and beat them vigorously in a big bowl till you get a homogeneous mix and add some pepper and salt (optional smoked paprika). 
Continue cooking the potatoes to the point they start to become mushy.  Then take out the garlic cloves, add some salt, and pour the potatoes into the bowl with the eggs and mix.
Clean up your pan, add some oil and put the whole mix in with a medium-low temperature and shake it strongly in order to avoid sticking to the pan. When the mix becomes bonded use a flat plate the size of the pan and flip the mix quickly onto the plate, add some more oil if necessary into the pan and put your tortilla back in again.  Continue to shake the pan and wait a few minutes.
You’ll see that it is ready when the tortilla easily moves if you shake the pan…and then….ENJOY!!!
