TIP: The chemical capsaicin, the component that makes peppers and chiles hot, is a tricky one. Drinking water does not relieve the burn. Capsaicin bonds with fat, so cream, whole milk, yogurt, and other creamy things are your best antidote. If you’re cutting chiles you can prevent irritation by coating your skin with oil before you start working with the chiles, or wearing gloves for chopping.
