?Warning. Hot chile's, such as jalapenos, habaneros, and serranos,
contain volatile oils that can burn your skin and eyes. Avoid direct
contact wit these peppers. When working with fresh chiles, wear
rubber gloves or disposable plastic gloves, or cover your hands with
small plastic bags. If your bare hands touch the peppers, wash your
hands and nails well with soap and hot water. If yo get some of the
oils in your eyes, flush them with cool water. Oils from chiles can
transfer to knives and cutting surfaces, so wash tools and
surfaces with hot, soapy water after using to prevent the oils
from transferring to other foods.
