Cover and grill for 30 to 35 minutes or until an instant-read thermometer inserted in meat registers 155 degrees F. (For a gas grill, preheat grill. Reduce heat to medium-high.

*Chile Pepper Safety:

Because hot chile peppers, such as jalapenos, 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.
