Three Pepper Barbecue Potato Salad

2 pounds red potatoes, cubed

1 tablespoon cider vinegar

cup sour cream

cup barbecue sauce

1 teaspoon chili powder

teaspoon garlic powder

teaspoon ground black pepper

teaspoon cayenne pepper, or to taste

1 jar (12 ounces) roasted red peppers, drained, patted dry and chopped

4 scallions, chopped

1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese

Salt, to taste

Place the potatoes in a large pot and add enough water to cover them by 1 inch. Bring to a boil and cook until the potatoes are just tender, about 15 to 20 minutes. Drain the potatoes, then spread them on a rimmed baking sheet to cool. Sprinkle the cooling potatoes with the vinegar, then refrigerate for 30 minutes.

Meanwhile, in a large bowl combine the sour cream, barbecue sauce, chili powder, garlic powder, black pepper and cayenne pepper. Stir in the roasted red peppers, scallions and cheddar.

When the potatoes are cool, gently stir them into the sour cream mixture until well coated. Season with salt. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

Serves eight.
