Chipotle Potato Salad, Applesauce Barbecue Seitan

I'm always trying to think of potato salad ideas that don't have a strong vinegar taste thanks to my husband who has a child-like gag reflex to anything with vinegar in it. This recipe has great flavor, spicy from the chipotle peppers and sweet from the orange marmalade. I can only assume it will taste even better tomorrow for lunch once the flavors have been allow to meld more. The red onion and cilantro provide a bright, fresh flavor that is welcomed in the warmer months.

Sweet homemade barbecue sauce sweetened with applesauce and spiced with cinnamon, ginger, cumin and paprika. This crockpot dish takes less than five minutes to prepare then you sit and let the crock pot do all the work. Serve it with a fresh potato salad great for picnics and backyard barbecues.
