Tortilla de Patata (Spanish Tortilla)

3 tablespoons butter
1 large red bell pepper, sliced into rings
1 fresh poblano chile pepper, sliced into rings
1 large onion, sliced
2 tablespoons bacon drippings
6 medium potatoes, peeled and sliced
8 eggs, lightly beaten
3 tablespoons water
2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh parsley
salt and pepper to taste
1 1/2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese


Place potatoes in a large bowl, cover with cold water, and refrigerate for 30 minutes or so. Drain, pat dry, and season with salt. Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Saute bell pepper, poblano pepper, and onion in butter until soft. Remove from pan, and set aside. Melt remaining 2 tablespoons butter and bacon fat in pan, and fry the potatoes until crisp and medium brown. Transfer to a plate lined with paper towels. Preheat oven to 225 degrees F (110 degrees C). Arrange the potatoes in a lightly-buttered, non-stick pan, preferably a deep, slope-sided skillet. Arrange the onions and peppers over the potatoes, and then spread cheese over the top. In a mixing bowl, beat eggs with water, parsley, and salt and pepper; pour the mixture over the potatoes. Put the skillet in a larger pan with a half inch of water in it. Bake in preheated oven until eggs set, about 30 to 40 minutes. Remove the tortilla, let cool, and loosen edges from the pan. Put a serving plate over the skillet, and flip the tortilla over onto the plate. Cut into small pie-shape wedges. Refrigerate until ready to serve; reheat if desired.
