Spicy-Chipotle-Potato-Salad-3I grew up and have lived in the Southwest for my whole life (except for a brief stint in Missouri when I was about one… don’t remember that, so it doesn’t count).

Because of living in Arizona and now Southern California Mexican food has always been a huge part of my life. I grew up on “cheese crisps” (and yes, that is what they called them at the Mexican food restaurants in AZ) and green chili burritos. And here in San Diego I have grown to love fish tacos and carne asada.


My mom and I have even begged everyone to let us do Mexican Food for holidays :).. but the turkey or ham always seem to win.

Because I love the Mexican flavor so much I often incorporate the taste into more “traditional American dishes.” One of my favorites is Chipotle. That stuff is just tasty and the more I can put it in… the better.

This time I dreamed up a yummy Spicy Chipotle Potato Salad using La Morena Products. It’s spicy, creamy and crunchy with just the right amount of heat. Take it to your next BBQ and I think everyone will be impressed and ask for seconds.


To get La Morena I shopped at my local Walmart in the Hispanic food section (so many good things in there!!).


Are you a Mexican food lover, too? What is your favorite way to incorporate Hispanic flavor into your family’s meals?
