Recipe by Rita1652

Warning WARNING !! This Tex Mex salad is Very SPICY !!! Use your best judgment in how much Chipotle peppers you use. Taste as you add just don't dump them all in. Each pepper has it's own heat level. Yes us Girls love it too! ;)

A hose under the sink broke and started flooding the kitchen when I was in the middle of making this. :( That's my excuse for totally forgetting to add the black beans. Didn't seem to matter, though, since everybody agreed it was sensational. I used 3 chipotles, seeds and all, and the heat level was actually pretty mild. Thanks for a really top-notch recipe, Rita! Update: Six years and a whole lot of bowls of potato salad later, I don't think I've ever served this to anyone who didn't rave. So many people told me at a cookout last weekend that it was THE BEST they'd ever tasted that I just had to thank you again for sharing this wonderful dish.
