Southwest Potato Salad

I love Summer and can't get enough of the warm weather. The hotter the better in my opinion! We use the grill a lot during the summer and today I made a Mexican Flank Steak and wanted to mix up the sides instead of serving rice or black beans. I decided on a southwest potato salad. If you like a lighter potato salad without mayo then this is the salad for you! This is made with light sour cream and it was an instant hit with the family. The perfect side dish for your next BBQ!

Southwest Potato Salad
Serves 6
Cal 144, Carbs 9.5, Fat 8, Fiber 2, Protein 7.8

1 bag baby red potatoes, rinsed and scrubbed (I used an 8 oz bag)
3/4 cup reduced fat sour cream
1 tsp. chili powder
1 tbsp. Mrs Dash Spicy Red Pepper Seasoning Blend
Pinch Salt
1/4 cup pickled jalapenos, chopped
1/4 cup grape tomatoes, chopped
4 oz pepper jack cheese, cubed
2 green onions. sliced

Place potatoes in a large pot of salted water, bring to a boil and then simmer covered, 12-15 minutes or until fork tender. Drain and cool.

In a mixing bowl combine remaining ingredients. Add potatoes and chill for at least one hour before serving. Top with additional green onions if desired. Enjoy!


  1. I don't make potato salad often but this sounds really good. My husband would love it.

  2. This version of potato salad sounds good. My kids claim to not like potato salad but I'm convinced they just haven't found the right one that makes their tastebuds dance!
