Expert Tips

Jalapeños and other hot chiles can bite you before you bite them. Capsaicin, the substance that makes chiles hot, can irritate your skin and especially your eyes. Cover your hands with plastic bags or thin rubber gloves, or wash your hands well and scrub under your nails after handling hot chiles, otherwise, an inadvertent rub of the eye could cause a three-alarm mishap.
