  1. Preheat the oven to gas 6, 200°C, fan 180°C. Grease a 20-22cm (8-9in) square baking tin. Crack the eggs into a large bowl. Add the oregano and some seasoning; beat until combined.
  2. Add most of the peppers, chorizo and potato to the egg mixture. Pour into the prepared tin and bake for 20-25 mins, until set.
  3. Meanwhile, prepare the salad. In a small jug, mix the reserved pepper liquid with the vinegar. Put the salad leaves in a bowl and pour over the dressing; toss to coat.
  4. Scatter the remaining pepper over the tortilla. Cut into 4 squares and serve with the salad and tzatziki, if you like.
