*

Because hot chile peppers, such as jalapeños, 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.

This is a really good recipe! We mashed the contents together for a more dip-like consistency. With lime flavored and blue corn chips it is fantastic.
