Loaded Jalapeño Popper Potato Salad Recipe

Yield: 6 servings
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 35 minutes

This Loaded Jalapeño Popper Potato Salad is not your ordinary salad – it's a flavor-packed, creamy sensation that'll have everyone at the BBQ asking for seconds. So, grab those potatoes and get ready to spice up your salad game this summer!

Ingredients

  • 2 pounds potatoes (Yukon Gold or red potatoes work well)
  • 6 slices bacon, diced
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons pickled jalapeno juice
  • 1 cup pickled jalapeno slices, chopped
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Optional: 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 fresh jalapeno, sliced for garnish

Instructions

  1. Wash the potatoes thoroughly and cut them into bite-sized cubes. Leave the skin on for extra texture and nutrients. Place the potatoes in a large pot, cover them with water, and add a pinch of salt. Bring the water to a boil over medium-high heat and cook the potatoes until they are fork-tender but still firm, about 10-15 minutes.
  2. While the potatoes are boiling, cook the bacon in a skillet until it's crispy. Once done, transfer the bacon to a paper towel-lined plate to drain excess grease. Once cooled, crumble the bacon into small pieces and set aside.
  3. In a mixing bowl, combine the mayonnaise, sour cream, pickled jalapeno juice, and optional garlic powder. Mix well until all the ingredients are thoroughly combined.
  4. Drain the cooked potatoes and let them cool for a few minutes. Transfer the potatoes to a large mixing bowl. Add the chopped pickled jalapeno slices, shredded cheddar cheese, sliced green onions, and crumbled bacon to the bowl with the potatoes.
  5. Pour the dressing over the potato mixture and gently toss until all the ingredients are evenly coated with the dressing. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  6. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap or a lid and refrigerate the potato salad for at least 1 hour before serving to allow the flavors to meld together. Before serving, give it a gentle stir and taste for any additional seasoning adjustments. Garnish with extra bacon, cheese, or fresh jalapeno slices, if desired.
