why can't I cook chiles without choking??

    Love chiles but when I cook them it's like all the air goes out of the area and I just cough and cough - makes it not worth the pleasure of eating them! Am I doing something wrong?

    Try not frying the chillies in the oil at the start. Put them in the pot later once everything else is in then you won't choke.

    Thanks will give that a go- only use them though in stir fry and all the recipes say to start with the chile in the wok! Will give your way a try....
