From the Test Kitchen
*Handling Hot Peppers:

Because hot chile peppers, such as serranos, contain volatile oils that can burn your skin and eyes, avoid direct contact with chilies as much as possible. When working with chile peppers, wear plastic or rubber gloves. If your bare hands do touch the chile peppers, wash your hands well with soap and water.

Covering guacamole with a layer of sour cream is another way to make it hold longer without the avocado darkening.
