From the Test Kitchen
*

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

For extra flavor, in a bowl combine 1/2 cup mayonnaise or salad dressing, 1/2 cup ketchup, and 1 tablespoon smoked paprika. Drizzle over coleslaw and avocado on rolls.
