When is a tortilla not a tortilla?

Here in the U.S. we usually think of tortillas as a flat bread-like disk  made of cornmeal or flour that is used for tacos, enchiladas and other Mexican food.  But if you ask for a tortilla in Spain, you will get something completely different.  No corn, no flour, no hot sauce.  Instead you will eat eggs (huevos), onion (cebolla), and potatoes (patatas, en España, o papas, en México).  Incidentally, it's a great vegetarian dish suitable for nearly any meal -- but never for breakfast in Spain!
