Tortilla Puff Pastry Half Moons

tortilla puff pastry half moons

These fellows are called tortilla triangles, because they are stuffed with red bell pepper and red onions, my favourite ingredients for a Spanish tortilla. They also have some delicious potatoes mixed in, because the traditional tortilla just is no tortilla without potatoes, duh. 
The slightly sweet flavor of the red bell pepper makes such a tasty addition to the rustic aromatic onions and potatoes, your friends and family will definitely love this one.

Besides being a easy, quick to make and most importantly a super delicious meal, it`s an absolutely go to recipe if you have any left over vegetables, you don`t want to throw away. Because believe me or not, but these buddies can be stuffed with almost everything without loosing any of their tastiness. 
So feel free to fill them with anything you like. If your not the vegetarian type, try adding chorizo or bacon to this recipe.
