Sassy Potato Salad

2 lbs. red new potatoes, boiled and diced
1/4 c. scallions, chopped
1/4 c. roasted red peppers, diced
1/2 c. sour cream
2 T. mayonnaise
1 c. shredded cheddar cheese (sharp is yummy)
salt and pepper to taste
garlic powder to taste

Place the diced potatoes into a large mixing bowl. Add the chopped scallions and red peppers. Add the sour cream and mayonnaise, gently mix together. Fold in the cheddar cheese and season to taste with the garlic and salt and pepper. Place in a sealable container and store in the refrigerator overnight. Serve cold. Tip: You can roast your own peppers in the oven under the broiler or on the grill. Turn them until all the sides are charred and then let cool. Peel the black skin off of the peppers, remove core, and then dice.
