Spicy Black Bean Potato Salad

Made  times

"Potato salad with a Texas flair - I get many requests to bring this to picnics. Nice blend of potatoes, black beans, green onions, bacon, and jalapenos. Sometimes I sprinkle dried crushed red hot peppers over top for color and taste."

  1. Place potatoes in a pot with enough water to cover. Bring to a boil, and cook until tender. Drain, dice, and cool.
  2. Place eggs in a pot with enough cold water to cover. Bring to a boil and immediately remove from heat. Cover saucepan, and let eggs stand in hot water for 10 to 12 minutes. Drain, cool, peel and chop.
  3. Place bacon in a skillet over medium-high heat, and cook until evenly brown. Drain, crumble and set aside.
  4. In a large bowl, mix chopped eggs, 1/2 the bacon, black beans, green onions, jalapeno peppers, bell pepper, mayonnaise, mustard, and Cajun seasoning. Gently mix in diced, cooled potatoes. Season with salt and pepper, and sprinkle with remaining bacon. Cover, and refrigerate until ready to serve.

This was good - exactly like the potato salad I already make only adding black beans - nice touch! Might have to do it from now on! Thanks

We have 5 children & this was a winner recipe!! I made it for a church picnic & everyone loved it!

So good! A lot was gone while it was still warm. Used half mayo, half Miracle Whip, canned jalapenos, and all the bacon went in the salad.

Excellent! I added a little Tabasco sauce to it for extra zing. It's now my husband's favorite potato salad.

Pretty good. My problem is I have a tendency to over cook the potatoes. First they are too al dente; next they are mush!

I made this for the salad bar at our local American Legion Club's steak night, and it was well received.

NICE change from traditional Potato Salad, will make again

This is fabulous! What a great unique potato salad recipe. I love the spice of the jalepenos.
