Tips

Because hot chile peppers, such as chipotle peppers, contain volatile oils that can burn your skin and eyes, avoid direct contact with chiles 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.

Tips

Baked beans are a perfect side dish for this slow cooker ribs recipe.
