I like to make this and serve it while the potatoes are still warm. It is also good after it has been refrigerated.

How to Make Bacon/Jalapeno Potato Salad


  1. Boil potatoes with skins on until fork tender. While potatoes are boiling, fry bacon, drain and crumble. Reserve fat from bacon.

  3. Pour some of the hot bacon drippings over the potato salad and stir well. You can add more or less of any ingredient depending on your taste. Refrigerate leftovers.
