COMBINE:

Be sure to use a skillet that's both ovenproof and nonstick so you can transfer the whole thing to the oven and easily slide the tortilla out when it's done.

Instructions

Preheat oven to 450°.

Heat oil in a 10-inch nonstick ovenproof skillet over medium-high. Layer potatoes, onion, chopped bell pepper, ham, and 2 Tbsp. capers in skillet in two batches; season with black pepper. Cook mixture, stirring occasionally, until potatoes are tender and golden, 15–18 minutes.

Whisk together eggs, water, thyme, pepper flakes, salt, and 12 tsp. black pepper. Stir eggs into potato mixture, reduce heat to medium, and cook until eggs are slightly set, about 3 minutes.

Transfer skillet to oven and bake tortilla until eggs are puffed and set, 8–10 minutes. Loosen edges and bottom of tortilla with a spatula; slide out onto a plate.

Combine parsley, diced bell pepper, and chopped capers. Top each serving with 1 Tbsp. yogurt and parsley mixture.

To evenly distribute the flavors from the start, assemble the tortilla by arranging the ingredients in layers.
