Recipe Tips

Avoid touching face when handling jalapeno peppers. Consider wearing gloves, as oils may burn skin.| For less spicy heat, remove seeds and membranes from jalapenos before slicing.| The chicken may be cooked and sliced up to a day in advance. When preparing nachos, toss cold chicken with lime juice just before topping chips.
