While this potato salad is awesome as-is, if you love green chilies or simply want more of a kick from this potato salad, I recommend doubling the amount of green chilies. While my wife found it just right I could’ve used just a tad more.

I like to use Yukon Gold potatoes when making potato salad but you can substitute for russet potatoes if that’s what you have on hand.

There’s quite a bit of debate over the best kind of potatoes to use in a potato salad but since everybody has different tastes, I suggest you use what you prefer.

You will need the following ingredients to make this Mexican Potato Salad recipe (see recipe card for quantities): Yukon Gold Potatoes, Hard-Boiled Eggs, Yellow Onion, Green Chilies, Mayonnaise, Yellow Mustard, Red Wine Vinegar, Milk and Salt and Pepper.

  1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add cut potatoes and boil until tender. Strain in a colander and rinse with cold water to remove any excess starch and prevent the potatoes from cooking further.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the potatoes and the chopped hard-boiled eggs. Toss with onion and green chilies.
  3. In a small bowl, combine the mayonnaise, mustard, wine vinegar until well blended. Stir in the milk, salt and pepper.
  4. Pour the dressing over the potatoes and gently stir to coat. Cover and refrigerate for 2 to 3 hours to allow the flavors to meld together
