1 Tbsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. salt

1. Cut potatoes into halves or quarters, depending on size, to make bite-size pieces. Place potatoes in stockpot and fill with cold water until covered by 1”. Bring to low boil and immediately reduce to medium simmer. Cook until potatoes are tender. Drain and place in two full-size 4” steamtable pans.
2. Add black beans, green onions, red bell peppers and dill pickles to potatoes.

Hold at below 40°F or until ready to serve.
