This is a zesty potato salad that is a nice change of pace. It is great with a grilled steak! Recipe can be doubled and the seasonings can be adjusted to your taste.

It may look like ordinary potato salad, but once you taste it, you'll love the difference. It has a cool creamy texture from the cream cheese that balances out the "kick" from the jalepenos. I'm glad that I tried this and I'll make this again. Thanx!

A very unusual potato salad but so very tasty!I always used yogurt or mayo for a potato salad but cream cheese was fantastic. And the jalapeno gave a nice aroma and made it so spicy. I made half of it because it was two of us but I was sorry that i didn't made the whole amount! Thanks so much for posting it. I will make it again and again in the future.
