I think you owe Dr_Paprika a huge apology!

We visited Spain a few years ago and that was my first experience with patatas bravas. We liked them so much, we've made them several times since. I don't know the recipe we've settled on off the top of my head, but it's quite a bit of paprika (we grow and dry our own paprika peppers, along with a dozen more varieties of peppers). So good!
