Chipotle Smoked Potato Salad

You are watching: Chipotle Smoked Potato Salad


Looking for something simple and smoked to pair with your grill? This smoky chipotle potato salad is a perfect match. The sauce is not thick, but let the chili and adobo do the work. They create a nice smoky finish to the potatoes and the adobo adds a wonderful earthy flavor. You can also add ingredients – both corn and bacon go well together and can be added to this simple recipe.

Chipotle peppers alone produce a beautiful, earthy smoke. But if you want more smoke (No heat), try using liquid smoke in the recipe. You can also add heat without the smoke by adding crushed red pepper. Be careful with how much you add – start small (e.g., half a teaspoon) and work your way up. Crushed red peppers can increase the amount of heat amazingly quickly.
