Be cautious when cooking with jalapeño peppers. Most of the heat lies in the seeds, so for a milder dish, discard the seeds. Make sure to thoroughly wash your hands after handling the peppers, before touching your face or eyes. For extra caution, you can wear rubber gloves.

    Thank you for your input! It's much appreciated. :)

    It's actually rather difficult to exactly calculate the nutrients in a recipe. But I agree with you that 18g sounds much, I would say it should be around 10g (you forgot the onion). I will send this on to the recipe team and they will change the values if they agree.
