A spin on Bobby Flay's very distinctive southwestern, egg-less potato salad. To better soak in the flavors, make sure you pour the sauce over the warmed/hot potatoes.

Outstanding! and a nice change from the norm. I made some changes because I decided to make this at the last minute and didn't have the exact ingredients on hand: I used larger red potatoes (peeled) and cut them into chunks rather than slicing them. I also omitted the bacon because I had none, but added some thawed frozen kernel corn. I opted for extra cayenne pepper and garnished the salad with fresh cilantro and a sprinkling of sliced scallions. Served this with grilled garlic shrimp and pita bread heated on the grill. This is truly a keeper.
