NOBODY likes hot pepper hands!!!

Before I get into anything, take a look at what is happening in the picture's what you think - I'm not proud.  
It seemed like a good idea at the time one night when I was cutting poblano and anaheim peppers!  I HATE getting hot pepper hands, I almost always end up touching my's a nightmare!  I'm sure you have all been there.  If not, then's an awful experience!  Anyway, this proved to be a bad idea after about 10 seconds - that is when I hit the great "Google" machine.  After finding loads of advice, I decided to try rubbing vegetable oil on my hands and cutting the peppers without the bag (just be careful with the knife, and oily hands now)!  It seemed to have worked!  YES, I rubbed my eyes just to be sure...I had to take one for the team!  LOL!  I'm not sure this would work with something as hot as a habanero pepper, but I'll let you know if I'm brave enough to try it out some day.  

If any of you have tried any other methods of avoiding hot pepper hands, let me know!!!  

(***This is the recipe I was cooking that night - One Dish Chicken and Rice - YUM!)


  1. I hate hot pepper hands! I'll have to try the oil trick!

  2. I totally do this witch chicken because raw chicken grosses me out. Great idea for the pepper, will totally do that next time!
