Frittata Recipe

We have added chorizo to our Frittata Recipe because it gives a great flavour....but you can leave it out and it is still delicious.
Whenever we make this we eat it for lunch hot that day...and the next day cold....its yummy either way. We find that it makes a change from Tortilla....as it contains a lot of different ingredients. Its one of those handy dishes that you can raid the fridge for, so you can make your own version with whatever you can find!
