🌶 How to Handle Hot Peppers
The capsaicin in hot peppers is what makes peppers hot. If you handle hot peppers gloveless, it’s a guarantee that you’re in for a nasty case of chili burn, both on your fingers and anywhere you rub. Like your face. Ouch!
Even if you wear disposable gloves, be careful about what you touch. The gloves are going to protect your fingers, but touching any part of your body with the gloves after you’ve handled hot peppers can lead to severe chili burn. Resist the temptation to rub your eyes. Wait until you’ve removed your gloves and washed your hands thoroughly with soap.
🌡️ How Hot Are the Peppers
The Scoville Scale is the measurement that tells you the spiciness of a given type of pepper.

My wife loves this dipping sauce so much that she even puts it on her burgers! I might have to try that as well one of these days.

This Taco Bell quesadilla dipping sauce is just like the real thing. It is spicy but very tasty. I love the taste of cayenne pepper so I knew this would be a good dipping sauce. It did not take long to make so was good for an afternoon snack using celery and crackers.
