BSI Recipe: Chipotle Pepper Black Bean Potato Salad

So this weeks BSI ingredient was a lot easier to work with, simply because I like it!  That being said, I decided that I was going to come up with a recipe using only ingredients I had on hand.  Easier said than done!  Well, when I saw these guys, this was ingredient #1:

This happens to me more often than not!  This bag of white potatoes got buried in my pantry - I simply cut off the eyes - they were still good!

Then I gently boiled the potatoes in salted water with two eggs.  I did this step last night.

I may have added more Tabasco at the table! :D

Chipotle Pepper Black Bean Potato Salad

  • 15 ounces potatoes
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon Mustard
  • 1/2 cup sour cream (I don’t like mayo that much!)
  • 6 ounces canned black beans
  • 1 tablespoon chopped cilantro
  • juice of half a lime
  • 2 chipotle peppers in adobe sauce, chopped
  • salt and pepper to taste

Boil the eggs and potatos until done.  Let cool.  Peel eggs and chop.   Chop potatoes in quarters.  Add sour cream, mustard, cilantro, black beans, chipotle peppers and salt and pepper and mix well.  Sprinkle with lime juice and mix again.  The best part is the nutrition!  Each heaping 1/2 cup serving comes in at 100.5 calories, 2.3 fat, 15 carbs, 2.8 fiber and 5.5 protein!   Sadly, I think I am the only one in my family who will eat this, but I think a couple of my friends at my office will like this!

Thanks to Nicole for being this weeks hostess!

And I found out that www.calorieking.comhas Sweet Tomatoes on there!  So my lunch came in at 578 calories, 26 fat and 72 carbs.

No exercise – we leisurely walked at the mall so I don’t think that counts!   Off to clean the kitchen and watch Donald Trump’s Show tonight – that is a guilty pleasure of me and Tony to watch that show!  See you tomorrow!!

 

Even though these are packed in oil - it says 1/2 a jar is only 25 calories?  Not sure I believe that though!

  1. This looks great, and I love making things out of whatever is on hand. That often includes sprouty potatoes in my kitchen as well! I will update the post in a second. 🙂

  2. Your first photo cracked me up because I JUST posted a similar photo on my blog of my whacked-out potato! I’m glad I’m not the only one this happens to. Also good to know I can still eat the rest of it. I was about to toss it.

    I love Chipotle anything, so your recipe looks great. Nice job!

  11. I love the creativity of this.
    And what isn’t better with red peppers?
    I had diabetes during my last pregnancy and it is sort of like being vegetarian, if you don’t get creative you will die of boredom. Also one of my favorites was a half bagel, cream cheese and fresh strawberries, etc. or any ripe fruit. That got me through.

  12. I love roasted peppers in everything! 😀
