  • 3 pounds Yukon Gold potatoes or Russets, if preferred, scrubbed and peeled
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon White Wine or Distilled vinegar
  • 1 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • Zest of 1 lime plus juice of 1/2 a lime
  • 1 tablespoon ground cumin
  • 1 tablespoon Kosher salt
  • 2 teaspoon adobo sauce from chipotles in adobo
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 15 ounce can black beans rinsed and drained
  • 1 1/2 cup cooked corn
  • 3/4 cup finely diced red bell pepper
  • 1/3 cup finely diced red onion
  • 1/2 cup finely diced celery
  • 2 tablespoons minced Cilantro optional
  1. Cut the potatoes in half lengthwise and cut each half into thirds. Transfer potatoes to a large saucepan and cover with water by 1inch. Place over high heat and bring to a boil. Allow to boil for about 15-20 minutes, or until fork tender. Transfer the potatoes to a colander and strain thoroughly. 

  2. Place in a large mixing bowl and sprinkle with vinegar and gently toss. Set aside to cool. 

  3. In the meantime, make the dressing by adding mayonnaise, lime zest and juice, cumin, salt, adobo sauce, chili powder and black pepper to a bowl. Whisk to combine. Set aside until ready to use. 

  4. Add the black beans, corn, red bell pepper, onion, celery, cilantro and dressing. Stir ingredients together until mixed and transfer to the refrigerator to chill, about 3 hours. Once chilled, serve and enjoy.
