This one is for me Kay, but I use Serrano's they're a little hotter and I use plastic gloves when I am cutting these up, and then I throw them away. :)

Joanne, let me know how you like this corn bread, Ok? I havent made it in about 3 years. My dad loves this recipe.

You sure may use the peppers of your choice and gloves. Great idea. :)

I use those thin vinyl gloves, because one time I didn't have them on, and I cut up peppers and then I touched my eyes because I was then cutting up onions,Wow, that got my attention. You can get those at the drug store, 50 in a box. They're great.

Are they pricey? My daughter bought some for her chemistry class. It would be a good idea to purchase a box.

Naw, maybe a couple of bucks, I really don't remember exactly the price, but they are reasonable. How about do you have like $1.00 stores out by you? Check Walgreen or your favorite drug store, they are cheap.
