As a note, the chip part didn't work out so well. i'm more than certain this is not the fault of the recipe, but me. I made the chips the night before with the other parts, and the general complaint was that they had turned out soggy, but the salsa itself was a hit, the crema (sour cream) went down ok, but not great, I didn't assemble and was glad I didn't after the chips were a failure. So can't quite earn four stars, but the fault lie mostly with me and not with the recipe

I love all of these ingredients and will most likely put this in my recipe box. However, the editor's note to wear disposable gloves is concerning. As a nurse, I see that latex allergies are becoming more and more common and can lead to dangerous allergic reactions. Please make sure you use non-latex gloves, if you need gloves at all. Otherwise, soaking your fingers in some cold milk will take the burn from your skin after you chop your jalapeno
