From the Test Kitchen
The amount of hot chili peppers you use will vary with the heat of the pepper and your fondness for spicy food.
Because fresh chili peppers contain volatile oils that can burn your skin and eyes, avoid direct contact with them as much as possible. When working with chili peppers, cover your hands with plastic bags or wear plastic or rubber gloves. If your bare hands do touch the chili peppers, wash your hands well with soap and warm water.
Prepare as above. cover and chill in the refrigerator up to 48 hours.
