Because jalapenos 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.

Love this dish!! There is always some in the freezer. Found the recipe on the original torn out magazine page in my mom's recipe box. I like it a bit spicier so I use either 2 to 3 jalapenos or 1 Habanero. A must try. So refreshing.
