*Tip:

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.

**Tip:

To cook the couscous, in a small saucepan combine 1 cup water and 3/4 cup Israeli (large pearl) couscous. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, covered, for 8 minutes. Remove from heat. Let stand, covered, for 5 minutes.
