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.


To toast cumin seeds, place them in a small skillet over medium heat. Heat about 2 minutes or until aromatic, shaking skillet often.


Prepare as directed, except do not stir in tomatoes. Cover and chill for up to 24 hours. Let stand for 30 minutes before serving. Stir in tomatoes just before serving.
