An assortment of other vegetables can also be used here: red radishes, okra, jicama sticks, red and yellow sweet pepper strips, cabbage leaves, and/or asparagus spears.
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.
