How to Roast the Poblano Chiles
Heat broiler. Place whole poblano chiles on foil-covered baking sheet. Broil, 4 inches from heat, 7 to 10 min. or until chiles are evenly blackened, turning occasionally. Place in paper bag; close bag. Let stand 10 min. or until chiles are cooled. Remove chiles from bag. Peel away blackened skins with small knife; discard skins. Cut chiles lengthwise in half; remove stem and discard seeds. Use roasted chiles as directed in recipe.
How to Handle Fresh Chile Peppers
When handling fresh chile peppers, be sure to wear disposable rubber or clear plastic gloves to avoid irritating your skin. Never touch your eyes, nose or mouth when handling the peppers. If you've forgotten to wear the gloves and feel a burning sensation in your hands, apply a baking soda and water paste to the affected area. After rinsing the paste off, you should feel some relief.
