*Handling Hot Peppers:
Because jalapeno peppers contain volatile oils that can burn your skin and eyes, avoid direct contact with jalapeno as much as possible. When working with them, wear plastic or rubber gloves. If your bare hands do touch the jalapeno, wash your hands well with soap and water.
Place patties on a waxed paper-lined baking sheet and cover with another piece of waxed paper. Chill up to 24 hours.
