  • *Test Kitchen Tip: 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.
  • **Test Kitchen Tip: For a milder flavor, choose ground pasilla or ancho chile pepper; for a spicy smoky flavor, choose ground chipotle chile pepper.
