Mama Luisa's Tortilla (Potato Turnover)

* 6 beaten eggs
* 2 teaspoons salt
* 2 tablespoons sour cream
* 1 ripe avocado cut in thin slices for garnish
* 1/4 cup 2 % milk
* 1/4 onion chopped in small pieces

* 2 medium potatoes peeled and cut into small cubes
* 3 tablespoons olive oil
* 1/2 cup Kraft 2% Milk Shredded Cheddar Cheese
* 1 teaspoon black pepper

* Peel the potatoes and cut into small cubes. Heat a fry pan with 2 tablespoons of olive oil and fry the potatoes until browned (about 3-4 minutes). Season the potatoes with salt and pepper to taste, put on the lid of the frying pan and lower the heat, cook until the potatoes are cooked (approximately 5-7 minutes more).

* Add the onion and the chopped hot dogs to the frying pan and fry for 3 minutes over medium heat. Add the third tablespoon of oil if necessary.

* Beat the eggs with the cream and milk. Season with a little salt.

* Add the beaten eggs to the frying pan. Cook for two minutes and add the Kraft shredded cheddar cheese.

* Put the lid on the frying pan and cook on low heat until the eggs are cooked (for 15 to 20 minutes) You can look to see if the eggs are cooked by inserting a knife and if it comes out clean, it is ready to turn.

* Remove the lid and turn the tortilla using a flat plate. Cook on high heat for 2 minutes until the other side of the tortilla browns a little.

* Turn the tortilla again and decorate the top with the avocado slices.
