Spicy Potato Salad

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by ChipotleChick

This salad is not for the weak-hearted! Very spicy! You can adjust to make hotter or milder however, by rationing the amounts of chili powder, cayenne, and tabasco you add. This salad is delicious with another recipe I posted for Southwest Seafood Wraps. I am going nutty with the Southwestern-style recipes today, so if you want more, refer to My Recipes!

I just made this for the first time wanting to use some regular potatos before they go bad. It is amazingly good! I used more of the hot pepper sauce and cayenne. I also added 1/2 a large sweet white onion, a small red bell pepper, a chopped jalapeno and green olives instead of black. I really think that you may be able to omit or reduce the amount of oil! Yummy! A great departure from regular potato salad!
