Want to add some heat? Add in a finely chopped jalapeno pepper. For more spice, leave in the seeds, for less spice, remove the seeds. Remember to wear latex or rubber gloves when handling the jalapeno peppers as the oils and seeds in a jalapeno can irritate your skin. Make sure you avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth to prevent any irritation, and wash your hands with soap and water when you are done working with the pepper.
