    1. Place the potatoes into a large pot and cover with salted water. Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until tender, 10 to 15 minutes. Drain and allow to steam dry for a minute or two. Place the potatoes into a large bowl and chill in the refrigerator until cold, about 1 hour.
    2. While the potatoes are boiling, place the eggs into a saucepan in a single layer and fill with water to cover the eggs by 3 cm. Cover the saucepan and bring the water to a boil over high heat. Once the water is boiling, remove from the heat and let the eggs stand in the hot water for 15 minutes. Pour out the hot water, then cool the eggs under cold running water in the sink. Peel once cold. Chop the eggs, and place into the bowl with the potatoes.
    3. Preheat oven to 220 degrees C. Cut the capsicums in half, and remove the seeds, core and stems. Place the capsicums onto a baking tray, cut sides down. Cut the onion in half and place it onto the baking tray, cut sides down.
    4. Roast the capsicums and onion in the preheated oven until the skin of the vegetables has charred in places, about 25 minutes. Remove any large pieces of burned skin, and chop the capsicums and onions. Transfer into the bowl with the potatoes and eggs.
    5. In a bowl, stir together the mayonnaise, horseradish mustard, chilli, dill, garlic, cumin and salt and pepper until thoroughly combined. Pour the dressing over the potato mixture and lightly toss until the potatoes, eggs and vegetables are thoroughly coated with dressing. Chill before serving.

    I'm the person who submitted this recipe, and I've done a lot of tweaking to it. The past several times I've made this, I've cut way back on the chipotle peppers in adobo sauce. I like it really spicy, but the 4 peppers and 1/4 cup of adobo sauce is quite spicy for most people. I usually tone it down to 1 pepper and about a tablespoon or two of the sauce and it still has a nice bite to it.  -  06 Sep 2010  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    HUGE hit! Super spicy-I needed a chaser Unintentionally, I left out the dill completely. I'd probably do it again-it was perfect without! I made my own horseradish mustard w/dijon mustard & horseradish sauce.  -  24 Jan 2011  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
