To make the aioli, place the egg yolks and garlic in the bowl of a food processor or blender and process until combined. With the motor running, gradually add the oil in a thin, steady stream until the mixture is thick and pale. Add the hot water and process until combined. Taste and season with salt and pepper. Transfer to an airtight container and place in the fridge until required.
Heat 2 tbs of the oil in a deep frying pan over high heat. Add half the potatoes and cook, stirring occasionally, for 8 minutes or until golden and almost cooked through. Use a slotted spoon to transfer the potatoes to a large bowl. Repeat with the remaining oil and potatoes.
Add the chorizo to the same pan and cook, stirring, for 3-4 minutes or until golden and crisp. Use a slotted spoon to transfer to the bowl with the potatoes.
Reduce heat to medium-low. Add onions and sugar, and cook, stirring, for 15 minutes or until lightly caramelised. Add to the bowl with potatoes and set aside for 15 minutes to cool slightly.
Preheat oven to 180?C. Brush a 6cm-deep 22.5 x 28.5cm (base measurement) roasting pan with the extra oil to lightly grease. Line the base with non-stick baking paper.
Add the eggs to potato mixture and stir until well combined. Season with salt and pepper. Spoon the mixture into the prepared pan and bake, uncovered, in preheated oven for 35-40 minutes or until just set and a skewer inserted in the centre comes out clean. Remove from oven and set aside in the pan for 1 hour to cool.
To serve, use a sharp knife to cut the tortilla evenly into 36 squares. Place on a large serving platter. Top each square with a teaspoon of aioli. Serve immediately.
