Deviled Egg Potato Salad

Deviled Egg Potato Salad

This dish is the second part of a dish created for the subreddit, /r/52weeksofcooking, where the theme was "picnic food". My significant other and I found out that we had different ideas of what was considered "picnic food". My thought process was anything that could be easily carried outside, required minimal preparation, and easier to clean up. Her idea was something else that was wrong. That being said, this fit my idea perfectly because I was able to make it, wrap it up, put it in a bag or basket, and then walked to the cemetery across the street. Now about the potato salad... when I first made this, I felt like it needed something but eating it the next day, it tasted really good.
Ever since I was a kid, I have preferred Miracle Whip to Mayo but you can definitely sub for Mayo.
A** Blood ( a homemade hot chili powder that I make but you can use any kind you like or none at all!
Different types of mustard can be used as well.
