Jalapeño Popper Potato Salad

Jalapeno Popper Potato Salad is a spicy and delicious twist on regular potato salad. Flavored with cream cheese, bacon, and lots of jalapenos.


  • 3 pounds red potatoes, scrubbed and cut into bite-sized pieces

  • 1 (8-ounce) block cream cheese, room temperature

  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise

  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

  • freshly ground black pepper to taste

  • 1/4 cup chopped pickled jalapeno peppers

  • 2 green onions sliced

  • 1 cup shredded Mexican 4-cheese blend

  • 6 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled

  • 1 fresh jalapeno, thinly sliced


  • Place potatoes in a medium saucepan and cover with water. Add 1 teaspoon salt and bring to a boil and then simmer until soft, about 10-15 minutes. Drain well. Let cool so that they are still warm, but not hot when adding to potato salad.

  • In a large bowl, stir together cream cheese, mayonnaise, garlic powder, and pepper. Don't worry if the cream cheese doesn't get completely smooth.

  • Stir potatoes into cream cheese mixture along with pickled jalapenos, green onions, shredded cheese, and crumbled bacon.

  • Check for seasoning and add salt if desired.

  • Sprinkle fresh jalapeno slices on top. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until ready to serve.
