Spicy Southern Potato Salad

My father loves spicy foods. I came up with this recipe for him and it has been a big hit with the family. I make it for our family get togethers and it satisfies the hot pepper lovers as well as the potato salad lovers. Sometimes I make a batch with the peppers and one without to keep everyone happy. Spicy Southern Potato Salad is a new twist on an old favorite.
