To get the best quality out of your onions, they should be cut just before you are going to use them.
Begin by cutting a circle around the stem of the pepper.
Carefully pull out the stem and ribs.
Remove the remaining ribs by scraping with a spoon.
Wash the pepper in cold running water to remove any remaining seeds.
When working with hot chile peppers use caution not to place hands or fingers around the eyes, mouth or other areas of the body that may be painfully affected by the capsaicin substance contained within the chiles that easily rubs off onto the hands.
